The Rockies Urban Wild and Orchard encompasses a 3.5 acre steeply sloped meadow and orchard occupying nearly 600 feet of frontage on Marginal Street in the Jeffries Point neighborhood of East Boston. Located in a dense, urban location, The Rockies is one of the few remaining natural areas East Boston. Currently East Boston is a dynamic, neighborhood in flux. Recent open space improvements in the vicinity area include the Samuel Adams Schoolyard, Sumner Lampson Playground(2012), Golden Stairs Park (2011), and the Garden at the Rockies (2000s). With the continued development and revitalization of the East Boston waterfront, the planned expansion of Piers Park (Phase 1 Completed 1992), and the creation of new retail and housing in the immediate area, the Rockies Urban Wild and Orchard is situated to become a vital asset for the neighborhood and key component to the future of East Boston.

Environs: Identity and Experience of Puget Sound
The transformation of leftover, unused, or underutilized spaces in the built environment holds the potential to create sociable spaces that foster increased worker morale, increased productivity and heightened quality of work. By utilizing a storage room and an adjacent digital fabrication laboratory, Lost: Reinventing a Leftover Space, proposes the creation of an interior garden and art gallery in this lost space. By focusing on color, contrast, texture and form, the interior garden and art gallery aims to create a sensory escape for the users of the building, letting them escape the stresses of work, putting their minds at ease, without physically leaving the building.
