Future Decker RFI Sketch Night

The Boston Society for Architecture (BSA) and the Housing Innovation Lab (Housing iLab) are releasing a Request for Ideas (RFI) where individuals and teams are invited to imagine new housing models that can be built on small sites. The RFI marks the first phase of this year's Housing Innovation Competition.

If you have an idea for the Future Decker RFI but can’t quite create the visual for it, they can help! On June 16 the BSA and iLab bring you Sketch Night! Bring your thoughts, site information, and any examples of what you’d like to see and they will match you with someone who can bring it to life digitally or on paper! They will be working with Boston artists, architects, and designers to create images for your RFI idea. Here you will have the opportunity to get one-on-one time in a break out room to talk through your proposal while the other person sketches it out in real time. While the artist sketches away, there will be a virtual Triple-Decker Trivia session in the main zoom-room, with questions inspired by the Past, Present, Future-Decker Online Exhibition. This will be a casual evening designed to bring out the joy in the process

If you would like to join in and need an interpreter please email [email protected] by June 9, 2021.

The iLab and the BSA are working together to explore new ideas and approaches in addressing the city’s housing needs. Learn more about their joint housing innovation work here.
