produced by Accelerate Wentworth Innovation + Entrepreneurship Center accelerate@wit.edu @WITXLR8

Special thanks go to: Boston City Council President Andrea Campbell + team for the unwavering support; The Consulate of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and CITIXL for bringing the Dutch perspective to Boston; the Wentworth Provost Office, the Department for Architecture for their generous financial support; and the Accelerate team for launching another impactful innovation immersion event, planting seeds and sparking action. 1


CITYLAB I Reclaiming Space On March 22+23, 2019, we launched CityLab, an immersive and high-impact experience with community leaders, students, faculty, and industry rebels from across disciplines and backgrounds. Looking through the Dutch lens, with their long history of reclaiming spaces, we developed a series of strategies and short-term solutions for underutilized and abandoned properties in Boston’s Dorchester and Mattapan neighborhoods. These solutions are meant to foster connections among people, inspire action, showcase what is possible and heal the urban fabric. This fieldbook is a living artifact! Get inspired by the ideas generated around some properties, take a walk around the neighborhood, visit the sites, squint your eyes and imagine, collect your thoughts and ideas, sketch...then mobilize and turn them into reality. Keep pushing + make something great because you can! Your CityLab Team

INSPIRATION

CityLab teams created ideas and possible solutions for eight properties in District 4. These concepts were reflected in two categories:

1\\ Art + Greenscapes + Community Utilizing vacant lots to engage the community through arts and greenscapes while providing room for renewal and retrival. 2\\ Youth Development + Community + Entrepreneurship Repurposing empty buildings to provide youth development, community involvement in design/ build projects shaping the neighborhood as well as envisioning a catalyst for food entrepreneurs. Enjoy discovering them!

D4DC - District 4 Design Collaborative 1127-1135 Blue Hill Ave

What was the problem you tackled? How might we increase affordable housing? What was the idea you developed? D4DC is a partnership among the City of Boston, local architecture schools, high schools, trades, artisans, and D4 residents. It is an “incubator” space for students, faculty, and community to co-design building solutions. Students would get exposure to working with real clients, manging a project from start to finish while the community would have ample input in sharing their neighborhood. Trades could provide training. Artisans could engage as inspiration and to exhibit their work within D4DC. Local businesses could source recycled and refurbished materials, which then could be sold back to the community at afforable prices. Revenue generated will be reinvested further into udnerutilized properties and continues to create affordable housing solutions. Who would benefit? Primarily residents in need of affordable housing. Community and students would benefit from working and learning together. Partnerships add value to the process and amplify local community. What will it take to turn your concept into a viable solution? ● Identify potential viable partners. ● Research possible private, public funding sources. ● Engage students and community representatives to get the conversation started and map possible milestones.

11


What is the impact? [Community/Economy/Environment] ● Community can see investment of time and resources being made into their district. ● Community members have a voice and are an integral part of the design build process. ● Residents can afford to stay in their neighborhood.

Art/Farm

114 Bowdoin Avenue What was the problem you tackled? How might we add green spaces and community activation across the neighborhood? What was the idea you developed? Combining art and agriculture within a small gallery structure providing a platform for artists while activating the general community. With the help of funding from hardware stores and other corporations, the site transforms into an urban farm by involving the community in growing its own food – promoting a healthy lifestyle. The building itself exhibits local, self grown art and represents a surface for artistic statements fostering expression and creativity. Unleashing the inspirational powers of building, creating and gardening, the site turns into an active testimony of the community’s identity and epitomizes growth in every sense. Who would benefit? Artists and entire population What will it take to turn your concept into a viable solution? ● Investigating permitting and land usage. ● Rallying a core group of volunteers to conceptualize and launch a crowdfunding campaign ● Establishing volunteer groups to build and sustain engagement. ● Seeking corporate partnerships to source materials and funding.

15


What is the impact? [Community/Economy/Environment] â—? Promoting healthy and sustainbale living through gardening and access to produce. â—? Platform for artists and community to bond by building trust together.

The Connection Catalyst at Fields Corner 1476-1478 Dorchester Ave

What was the problem you tackled? How might we catalyze connections across cultures, generations, and communities? What was the idea you developed? A phased approach slowly revitalizing the existing structure, which is located in a high traffic area with a high “walk to�score - an integral benefit for every community. Phase 1: Transforming the raw space through a community clean up, interior painting, donated used furniture and instruments creating dining areas and entertainment opportunities. Rotational food trucks provide ethnic food every night, pay parking rent and a fee to gain access to the interior space. This will be the primary source of revenue. Phase 2: Kitchen restoration provides local residents with the opportunity to rent space and produce food, which can be sold through an adjacent store front and/or local farmers market. Rotational cooking classes and events can be held to enhance community engagement and revenue generation. The rooftop/second floor will be rentable for social events and movies. Phase 3: Combining culture programming, a shared industrial kitchen for commercial undertakings and event spaces. Acting as small business incubator, the concept unites free activities for residents and revenue-generating programs.

19

Free Programs would include: Cultural Lectures, Generational Cooking classes (Taught by elder to younger generations), Music Lessons, and big scale games like Large Chess, and Large Jenga. Paid Programs include: Farmers Market, Musical Performances, Community Dinners, Movie nights, Cooking Classes, Food Truck Meal Prep, Event Rental and Kitchen Rental.


An exterior art installation would be a mural representing the communities living in the neighborhood and will span the bridge, wall and building entirely creating an interconnected location while the rooftop provides an additional green space exactly as the train symbolizes connectivity. Who would benefit? All of Fields Corner, and the greater Boston residents passing through the commuter rail station. What will it take to turn your concept into a viable solution? ● Initial clean-up to experiment with the minimum viable product. ● Activation of community to support concept and take ownership of programming. What is the impact? [Community/Economy/Environment] ● The Connection Catalyst would have significant impact to develop community identity and cohesion.

Experiential Job Training 240 Bowdoin St

What was the problem you tackled? How we might provide opportunities for residents to expand their skills to secure and reach higher levels of employment? What was the idea you developed? Faced with a building dedicated to commercial space on the ground floor and abandoned apartments upstairs, we envisioned an incubator to provide job training in all construction trades. Imagining partnerships with local organizations, such as a teen center and trade unions offering apprenticeships, bringing together young adults and professional trades[wo]man. The building itself becomes an experimental training facility, being remodeled over and over again. Training and practicing a variety of building trades will build personal confidence, skills and ultimately a pathway to employment opportunities. At the same time, it fosters the high demand recruitment pipeline for trades. Who would benefit? Residents by promoting a Economic Pathway, Building Trade Unions and the City would benefit. What will it take to turn your concept into a viable solution? â—? Building partnerships with trade unions while providing instructors and mentors. â—? Creating connections to young adults through teen centers, high schools, and community outreach. â—? Clarity around permitting and liability insurance.

23


What is the impact? [Community/Economy/Environment] â—? Community: empowering youth with training while providing a sense of purpose when working and dignity with true ecconomic viability. â—? Economic: residents would increase their average yearly earnings, increasing average household income within the district and boosting a stakeholder position economically.

The Shed on the Bend 262 Norfolk Street

What was the problem you tackled? How might we provide spaces for communities to come together? What was the idea you developed? In an area predominantly offering rental housing, this site acts as an expansion of people’s living rooms and gardens. With space being at a premium, a shared community garden is combined with an event space for birthdays, family events and community festivals. Located at the corner of Capen Street and Norfolk street, the site is visible and accessible. A small building powered by solar panels (including a storage battery module) offers storage for tables and chairs as well as an indoor living room, flanked by greenhouses for community gardening. A patio outside the structure offers outdoor space for get-togethers and gatherings. The pathway through the site is marked by a special gate available for Instagram moments such as weddings or anniversaries. The area surrounding the patio is transformed back to an Urban wild with a vegetable garden and park. Who would benefit from your solution? Everyone in the community. What will it take to turn your concept into a viable solution? ● Investigating permitting and land usage. ● Rallying a core group of volunteers to conceptualize and launch a crowd funding campaign. ● Establishing volunteer groups to build and sustain engagement while taking ownership. ● Seeking corporate partnerships to source materials and funding.

27


What is the impact? [Community/Economy/Environment] ● Celebrating community and family in outdoor gathering spaces. ● Promoting healthy and sustainable living through gardening and access to produce. ● Establishing pride in community ownership, the environment is activated promoting safety.

C-Square Gaming Center 318 Talbot Avenue

What was the problem you tackled? How might we provide a safe, supervised, fun, and educational space for teenagers in the Mattapan/Dorchester area? What was the idea you developed? We envisioned the C-Square Gaming Center. Combining teenage fascination for video gaming with academic success. The center focuses on students grade 6 and up engaging at least four neighboring schools. Programmatically, teens/teenagers would have a safe haven, focused area for their homework a spot accessing tutoring, while earning points towards time they can play team-based video games. To activate the space on nights or weekends it could be opened for adults and reaching a wider audience. Programs are also supported by co-op students from local universities and high-school students fulfilling volunteer hours. Local vendors could provide healthier food options to students allowing them to go directly from school to the center bolstering BPS’ initiative to provide healthy meals in healthy environs. The business model is intended to be self-sustaining. Cost for rent and electricity could be off-set through advertising billboards and environmentally conscious activation such as solar panels on the roof. A membership model would allow students and adults to access the space, food, and other amenities. Donations and partnerships will provide an opportunity for brand awareness and early access to a potential talent pipeline. We imagine recruitment and grants from local institutions and expanding to larger community interested in e-sports corporations. 31


If the space would be developed in the future and used towards another purpose, the equipment could be either moved to a new location or donated back to schools and non-profits. Who would benefit? Primarily teens and young adults. What would it take to turn your concept into a viable solution? ● Dedication to the mission. ● Strong community support to launch and sustain. ● Corporate sponsorships. What is the impact? [Community/Economy/Environment] ● Reduce stress and worry of parents for after-school care. ● Provide safe and engaging environment for teenagers. ● Connecting to a booming E-Sports video game industry as an economic activation opportunity. ● Demonstrate low environmental footprint through sustainable energy and energy-efficient devices.

Community Canopy 282-284 Washington Street

What was the problem you tackled? How might we provide a safe and healing environment to residents? What was the idea you developed? Creating a safe, lush and inspiring sanctuary for children, teens and adults. This concept addresses the fact that our kid’s radius of movement within neighborhoods has shrunk consistently over the last decades. While our parents safely roamed large parts of their neighborhoods, our kids are frequently confined to a smaller area which they can explore and grow in. This project uses an empty lot on Washington Street to create a healing oasis, a safe place for all ages – expanding the radius of movement by creating a destination. The “Community Canopy” Center is a large geodesic dome, an iconic structure offering space for classes, activities and festivities. Financed and supported by crowd funding, the building and the surrounding garden encourage personal growth and social connections. It’s structure suggests and mimics a hive of activity and a Hub for all to explore. A gently curved pathway draws visitors into the park-like community garden where healthy food and herbs are grown around the geodesic dome. The proposed programming includes yoga classes, healing events, ARTS as well as farmer’s markets – promoting mental and physical health close to home. Who would benefit? All residents and visitors.

35


What will it take to turn your concept into a viable solution? ● Investigating permitting and land usage. ● Rallying a core group of volunteers to conceptualize and launch a crowdfunding campaign. ● Establishing volunteer groups and partnerships to build and sustain engagement. ● Creating a community coucil which suggests programming. What is the impact? [Community/Economy/Environment] ● Promoting healthy and sustainable living through gardening and access to produce. ● Impact on individual well-being and communal gathering for shared experiences. ● Developing a destination out of an empty space.

D.Art in the Square 571 Washington Street

What was the problem you tackled? How might we expand activities/events for children/teenagers in the community to feel safe? What was the idea you developed? Focusing on the expressive power of art, making and exhibiting, this intervention makes use of an open courtyard that becomes a canvas for art, performance and gathering. The open space of the lot is used for outdoor seating and events, as studio spaces for artists to work and teach, as well as a vibrant green space for gardening. Exhibited are also the existing layers - brick walls and building parts that connect the new use to architecture from the past while providing urban gardens. Using minimal means for maximal outcome, the site will become a lively forum for expression for youth, the general community and beyond. Who would benefit? Young adults and aspiring artists (graphic, performing, etc) have the freedom to test creativity and collaborate with one another; foster mutual support between community and school-aged youth. What will it take to turn your concept into a viable solution? â—? Pop-up events to foster communal growth while creating destination buzz (outdoor cinema nights, performing arts night, outdoor art gallery, etc) â—? Upcycling of disposed materials for most larger furnishings (plant holders, easels, etc)

39


● Corporate sponsorships or supply donations from (Home Depot, Blick, Ikea) ● Partnership with local organizations and youth groups (Boys and Girls,YouthBuild, Freedom by Design) to gather interest and participants What is the impact? [Community/Economy/Environment] ● Activity and communal space for youth. ● Personal enrichment for community artists or aspiring artists. ● Garden promotes green and sustainable living.
