Street Seats Opening Celebration
Saturday April 27, 2013 from 1-3 pm
Boston Harborwalk, Gillette Public Dock
Near 36-98 Necco Court, Boston, MA 02210
Over the last few months, over 170 entries have been submitted to Design Museum Boston as part of their international competition to design seating for Fort Point Channel. In this public unveiling, the 20 semi-finalist and 3 finalist benches will be available for anyone to test with their own tukus.
So come, take a seat, enjoy the view, and walk the district to see for yourself how design can impact public spaces. A People's Choice prize will also be awarded to the bench most loved by the public, so be a participant and join the voting.
Food trucks, music and tours will be on hand. Free parking is available on A Street.
You can also stop by the free exhibition Design Innovation Gallery to see the 1/8 scale models of all 172 entrants. The 20 semi-finalist benches will be on display through October 6 along the Boston Harborwalk.
