FGS WELCOMES COMMON BOSTON COMMON BUILD
The Fenway Garden Society is excited to welcome the Boston design community to the Victory Gardens for the Common Boston Common Build Competition this weekend!
Starting Friday, six teams will be scouting locations in our park for installations that speak to the unique nature of the Victory Gardens, which they will have 72 hours — until exactly noon this Sunday — to build.
These temporary installations will then be judged by a jury from the art, architecture and design communities that includes Peter Kuttner, FAIA, President of Cambridge Seven Associates and former President of the Boston Association of Architects; Cynthia Smith, ASLA, Vice President and Principal with Halvorson Design Partnership; Katie Swenson, Vice President of Design Enterprise Community Partners; Janet Echelmanm Public Artist/ Sculptor, and others.
The public is invited to tour the build sites with the judges Sunday, June 24th, at 1 pm, and to vote for their favorite here!
While the teams are onsite we invite all to drop by and chat them up. They are here to learn more about the community that tends the Victory Gardens and how design can reflect and address the unique challenges that come with our stewardship of these seven acres.
