Harvard GSD Summer
The site is located in the downtown of Boston, in a triangular area between Back Bay and Columbus. The analysis of the site tells that the area is lacking people to visit it. The area has a long reflection pool that occupied about half of the plaza’s land space, and this pool has blocked pedestrian flows north-south. It needs a public space building to attract people.
My design placed a public library in the middle of the pool. It does not only free up a portion of usable space and open a path north-south but also make itself to be a central gathering space.
