Living in small spaces is not an issue unique to New Yorkers. With the immersion of technology and population growth, cities all over the world are looking for new ways to create more functional spaces. Guess which densely populated city is tackling the issue head on? Boston.
Design Museum Boston launched a gallery to inspire and showcase creative ideas in designing urban spaces. The exhibit “Innovative Urban Housing”, demonstrates groundbreaking and creative approaches to living in smaller spaces (including our furniture!). The gallery is located in the Innovation District – the hub of growth in Boston. The district has been bringing in thousands of jobs and you know what that means — people want to move there. Populations are growing and personal dwellings are shrinking. Designers know smart living areas both inside and outside our homes are more important than ever.
In Boston (and lots of other cities too), more people want to move back to the city which means it’s time to get creative about living situations. The imaginative minds in the Innovation District are answering urban challenges and Design Museum Boston is leading the charge. Challenges like the “Street Seats”, a competition to build outdoor seating, push designers to think outside the box.
The gallery is free and open to the public, don’t miss it!
