The urban environment has a magnetic quality. It is the epicenter of societies greatest accomplishments and worst ills. The city is a place of extremes managing to coexist and flow to a seemingly mystic order. In this masters research project I pursue a greater personal understanding of this environment. Specifically my interest lies in the relationship between the Massiveness (Organization/Infrastructure) and the smallness ( human experience) of the city. I set out to do this through personal experiences gained through the opportunity of visiting a number of cities within a short period of time. Through research and personal experience my intention was to return to the huge scale of the Central Artery Project with new eyes and interpretations, creating a proposal which would heighten the urban experience in downtown Boston.
