Innovative Design Alternatives Summit Boston features Francine Houben
01.05.2015 - Events
On May 6 and 7, the City of Boston will bring together designers, community leaders, developers, city officials, and academics in a two-day event called IDeAS: Innovative Design Alternatives Summit. Francine Houben will be a guest of Mayor Martin J. Walsh and speak during the plenary session on Wednesday afternoon.
The summit is intended to initiate an inclusive, interactive visioning process, to imagine the collaborative planning process, and to learn how citizens and visitors will experience Boston’s physical and cultural environments in the years 2020 and 2030.
IDeAS has emerged in response to the design challenge raised by Mayor Walsh in his December speech to the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, in which he encouraged developers and the design community to “reach beyond [their] comfort zone” and “take design to a new level” to build inspiration into Boston’s emerging urban landscape.
Organised by the City of Boston, the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA), and Boston Society of Architects (BSA), the events are free and open to the public. Interested attendees are encouraged to register for one or both days.
