The City and the Sea: Boston’s Evolving Dance With Water – Mike Ross Moderator at BSA’s Designing Boston Series
December 1, 2014
Prince Lobel real estate attorney Mike Ross will moderate a discussion with architects and urban leaders about rising sea levels and the new challenges of flood mitigation and resiliency planning they will face for the future of this coastal city.
Join the Boston Society of Architects for an evening exploring Boston’s evolving relationship with the ocean—both in how we built up the shorelines over the past three centuries and what that means as we face present-day sea-level rise. Which low-lying areas do we need to start thinking about now? And what can we learn from neighborhoods—such as the Back Bay—that were created from historic wetlands? When designing new sites, what must be considered?
