  • Vertical Village

    The city of Boston, largely a commuter city where people work downtown during the day and flee to their suburban retreats after is in need of new and innovative ways to draw people back into living in urban communities like during pre-’white flight’ urbanism. This solution draws upon the collective nature of the suburban neighborhood and its experiential qualities and combines it with the urban vitality of the city to create a series of vertically stacked ‘villages’, each having its own distinct character, unit layout and aggregation that provide a platform for a collective society as well providing residents with a sense of individualism that is quite often lost in most dense urban communities.
