International ideas competition ReGEN Boston that seeks innovative housing typologies to responds to Boston’s need to house the continuing life-cycles of its residents. The City needs a new round of planning, charged with harnessing growth and extending it to the many neighborhoods, many of which have been overlooked or under valued.
Entrants are challenged to re-imagine traditional housing typologies in order to provide a platform to promote:
- community living
- sustained urban life-cycles
- family urban housing
- sustainable growth
There are real unfilled opportunities in Boston’s housing market and we need creative ideas and proposals for public discussion. This competition will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Boston Society of Architects ‘Boston Visions National Design competition’ held in 1988.
ReGEN Boston invites designers to create the most innovative, yet practical, multi-unit style housing typologies for urban living of the century on one of two city owned sites. This ideas competition pits the solutions generated for two distinct sites in the Boston Harbor against one another to see which ideas come out on top.
