How can a startup incubator become a hive of collaboration and galvanize change in its community?
Dorchester, Massachusetts | Boston Urban Strategist | Adaptive reuse of 23,000 sf industrial building
The redevelopment of 259 Quincy Street is conceived as a bustling hive for collaborative, interdisciplinary exploration and creation focusing on integrating technology into all aspects of problem-solving – an innovation laboratory that serves the community. Marked by canopies, living walls and interactive murals, the building design fosters a dialogue with the community as a collection point for local artists and not-for-profit startups accessible to the public. The end of the building features a community meeting hall with amphitheater seating that can be fully opened to the sidewalk and adjacent plaza for events as an extension of the pedestrian realm.
