Community Building and the Emerald Necklace: Examples from Elsewhere

As Boston begins thinking strategically about its development throughout the 21st century, cities around the world provide case studies for how to achieve excellent outcomes in urban design and community building.

How can great design make a roadway a beautiful destination, instead of merely a place to travel through? What strategies learned from projects abroad can be applicable here in Boston? How can we create a greenway on Columbia Road that is a source of pride for Dorchester residents, unities neighborhoods, and remains a conduit for the movement of people, buses, cars, and bikes?

Join a conversation on lessons learned in design excellence and neighborhood connections from the Indianapolis Cultural Trail (Indianapolis, Indiana) and Superkilen (Copenhagen, Denmark). Both of these projects link diverse neighborhoods in a thoughtful way, with high standards for design excellence and a complete integration of public art.
