ResilienCity seeks to set the vision for the future of Boston’s Innovation District, a new neighborhood built on brownfield sites that will provide residences and workplaces for over 300,000 people. map-lab’s design proposal incorporates a strategy of new canals that gives 100 acres of land back to the sea and provides for roof gardens and living walls throughout the district with the goal of re-establishing long lost ecological conditions.
