Preparing for 2030: A response to Climate & Market Forces in Boston's Growing Innovation District

While climate change continues to reveal our vulnerabilities as a species, rising sea levels come to the forefront as a crippling force that will compromise urban infrastructure, unless the city is prepared. Understanding the needs of Boston and its 2030 objectives, this project is mainly concerned with connecting future implications of rising sea levels with increasing demands for mixed-use growth in the Innovation District.
