Reprogramming the City is an exhibit hosted by the Boston Society of Architects, displaying more than 20 ideas of innovative uses of existing city infrastructure, such as lamp posts which can become umbrellas for temporary shelter from storms, billboards which have become air cleaning bamboo groves, and many other ideas. Cities with concepts and projects represented include London, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Los Angeles and Boston, and works span an array of disciplines including architecture, design, engineering, and urban planning. If you find yourself in Boston, be sure to check out this inspiring exhibit which runs through September 29, 2013.
