Come join SEGD Boston Chapter and the Sasaki Associates Design Team in our Spring Social event featuring South Boston’s hottest new urban district, the Lawn on D. Anchored by the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC), the space occupies a critical mid-point between South Boston, the Innovation District and Liberty Wharf, and the Fort Point and Channel Center neighborhoods. This new district aspires to be interactive, flexible, technologically advanced, inspired by art and events, and inclusive of many constituents (residents, workers, conventioneers, tourists). The Lawn on D demonstrates and pilots these ambitions, testing spatial configurations and programming that will eventually be deployed to a future event space that will become the heart and focus of the new district along D Street.
Composed of two parts—the plaza and the lawn—The Lawn on D is a hub of activity for community events. The Plaza's paths blaze trails from D Street to the side entrance of the BCEC; its signature lights describe a right-sized space for gatherings; and its bright, playful, movable furniture invites visitors to make the space their own. The lawn at The Lawn on D—sited where 4 feet of urban fill used to block views and preclude access—now provides a gracious forecourt to the BCEC along D Street and hosts a range of shorter-term art installations and projects.
After the presentation Sasaki invites you to continue to “Drink” in neighboring Fort Point for refreshments and further discussion.
