Did you know that of our country's 100 largest cities, Boston ranks 94th in percentage of households with children? Think about all the fantastic, diverse cultural offerings Boston possesses and what an amazing city it would be to grow up in if it was just a bit more family-friendly! That's where design can step in. This is just one idea on the table at tonight's Pecha Kucha Boston...
Even though we don't have kids, we appreciate the notion that cities that support a diverse range of demographics and generations are usually happier, healthier environments for all residents. Tonight's series of 20x20 talks, hosted by the Boston Society of Architects/AIA and Common Boston, should be really interesting.
Common Boston's mission is to expand public awareness of the Boston area's built environment through interactive programs encouraging collaboration between design professionals and those for whom they design promoting good citizenship and action toward a better built environment.
Pecha Kucha Boston 11 is tonight at Mantra (52 Temple Pl, Boston, near Park St T). Doors open at 6:30 pm for drinks and chit chat; talks start at 7:15 pm. The event is free and open to the public. Cash bar.
