GSD students brought their design and research skills to address practical community needs this summer through the Community Service Fellowship Program. Their internships took them to government agencies and nonprofits in Boston and other cities.
Elizabeth MacWillie (MDesS ’14) and colleagues from Harvard, MIT and Tufts presented their ICE-POPS project at the prestigious Architecture Biennale in Venice.
GSD students Naz Beykan (MDesS) and Jainxaing Huang (DDesS) had fun with field research that will make a serious contribution to understanding the cooling effects of green space on the urban landscape.
Imagine if cities were planned taking into account water use, alternative energy sources, waste streams, biodiversity, and green space. That’s just what students are challenged to do in the Urbanism, Landscape, Ecology research concentration at the GSD.
