Event: Presentation
Location: BSA Offices, 290 Congress Street, Boston

The Suffolk Downs Urban Design Workshop is the third in an ongoing series of Urban Design Workshops organized by the BSA Foundation. The workshops’ overall goal is to open up dialogue and stimulate thinking about the design potential of places with particularly significant and compelling opportunities.

Suffolk Downs represents an opportunity to create a forward-looking 21st-century neighborhood that is equitable, diverse, environmentally aware, and in tune with shifting development trends.

The evening will include public presentations from interdisciplinary design teams led by David Gamble AIA of Gamble Associates, Shauna Gillies-Smith of Ground Inc., Isabel Zempel and Nina Chase of Sasaki Associates, and Paul Lukez FAIA of Paul Lukez Architecture. Their challenge was to develop a collection of ideas for the area between Route 1A and the Blue Line T stations that are mindful of equity, environmental, development, and community considerations.

Jury Panel
• Sara Myerson, director of planning, Boston Redevelopment Authority
• Joseph Aiello, director of business development North America, Meridiam Infrastructure
• Daniel Vasini, project director, West 8
• Omar Boukili, chief administrative officer, City of Revere
• Kishore Varanasi, principal director of urban design, CBT Architects

Prior Urban Design Workshops have focused attention on Beacon Yards and high-density housing along Dorchester Avenue in Boston. All follow a similar format of a public panel discussion, professional team charrettes, and public presentation of the teams’ ideas.

For more information about the events, contact Gretchen Schneider Rabinkin AIA, civic design director, at gschneider@architects.org.

The BSA Urban Design Workshops are supported by the BSA Foundation.
