Working with Loeb Fellow Thaddeus Pawlowski during J Term on their Boston Living with Water submission paid off for Lindsay Woodson (MDes), Jon Springfield (MUP) and Kira Sargent (MLA). Their entry, No Building is an Island, is a finalist in the building category, as is another entry by GSD alums Stephanie Goldberg (MArch ’93) and Mark Reed (MArch ’92), Prince Building Piers. There was GSD representation in the Neighborhood category with Resilient Linkages by Alex Krieger (professor of urban design), Kelly Lynema (MUP 13) and Brandon Cuffy (MArch) of NBBJ; and Chris Reed (associate professor of landscape architecture) was awarded Honorable Mention for Fort Point’s Living Basin in collaboration with Perkins and Will.
The jury whittled dozens of submissions down to 3 finalist teams per site category, which will submit their refined plans at the end of May to compete for a $20,000 grand prize. This spring, BSA Space will display an exhibition of the finalists’ proposals, along with an educational presentation on sea level rise. See all the finalists.
