Abstract

Frontier City documents a landscape architecture studio that envisioned a new urban landscape on the Boston waterfront. Students reconceived the city as an adaptive, proactive urban infrastructure based on the dockland warehouse typology, and reimagined urban streetscapes and resilient landscapes. Inter­facing with the landscape of the Boston Harbor, the new districts are defined by the form and function of public space; they accommodate future growth and stimulate an urban renaissance within the city of Boston. Guidelines for architectural character, and for the development of the urban grid, block typologies, and street profile will integrate a resilient landscape, and create an opportunity to invent another kind of nature. Frontier City is a Studio Report from the Spring 2016 and 2017 semesters at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
