Designing for Life: Boston/Caracas
As part of the Institutional Cooperation Agreement signed between the Central University of Venezuela and Wentworth Institute of Technology, the Symposium “Designing for Life, Boston / Caracas” looks to analyze some of the most relevant urban interventions made in Boston’s urban history in relation to the proposals of the contest of ideas to transform La Carlota Air Base into a Metropolitan Green Park, sponsored by the city of Caracas.
Curated and designed by renowned architects and professionals in the field of design, planning, and urbanism from different institutions from North and South America institutions, Design for Life Boston / Caracas will reveal the opportunities design has to offer and how it can impact urban contemporary cities in numerous and contrasting ways.
The exhibition, which spans an array of disciplines including architecture, design, built environment, and urban planning, will be a mixed overview of three exhibitions: The exhibition of the 12 finalists of the Competition of Ideas for La Carlota, an exhibition of the integration and works of the city landscape by students of Wentworth and a last “Caracas Zenith” sponsored by the Foundation for Urban Culture in Caracas.
The event will take place at Wentworth Institute of Technology, 550 Huntington Avenue in the city of Boston, next Friday, July 12, 2013. The symposium looks to be a place for exchange of ideas and experiences in order to learn how design can effectively transform the contemporary city.
