What we see today as a beautiful civic amenity was not always this way. Once upon a time, the Boston Harbor was known as the filthiest harbor in the nation. Following close to 30 years and $20 billion in environmental and transportation improvements, the harbor has transformed into a jewel for Bostonians to enjoy.

Several local designers and nonprofits contribute to the activation of Boston Harbor’s waterfront. Join Common Boston in a conversation with local leaders who are working on these projects. This event is co-hosted by Shepley Bulfinch and Silverman Trykowski Associates and follows the “Boston Harbor Then and Now” boat tour listed amongst the Boston Harbor events.

Speakers and Panelists include:
-Dan Adams, Founder, Landing Studio, and Associate Professor of Architecture, Northeastern University
-Sam Aquillano, Founder and Executive Director, Design Museum Boston
-David Burson, Senior Project Manager, Partners Healthcare
-Chris Busch, Senior Waterfront Planner, Boston Redevelopment Authority
-Vivien Li, President, The Boston Harbor Association
-Julie Wormser, Executive Director, The Boston Harbor Association
