Boston’s architecture and development scene is stronger than it has been in years as the pent-up demand of the past five years is exploding. New developments abound. And the unique challenges of building at a 21st century scale in a historic city are ever present. We see tall buildings proposed for small parcels in fine grain historic urban fabric, and the innovative ways in which these challenges are faced.
For our students, all of this new urban development means expanded co-op employment opportunities, and a chance to experience the city at yet another critical point in its ongoing transformation. The area’s many colleges and universities make Boston an international center of higher education, leading many to dub the city The Athens of America. The city is widely considered to be one of the world’s leaders in innovation.
