ILLUMINATING CITY HALL PLAZA

GSD Fall 2015: Core Studio II

Studio Critic: Jill Desimini

This reimagining of Boston’s City Hall Plaza uses light to create intimate and expansive spaces for daily and event use. A large civic plaza remains on the upper level, with programmable lights defining small or large rooms. A sloping arc lined with seats guides guides visitors down to a street-level stage. A field of lights acts as a metric as the ground seems to drop away down the ramp.
