BOSTON — It’s been five years since the Rose Kennedy Greenway was completed, capping a decades-long effort to finalize the Big Dig project. But a vibrant city like Boston never remains static and the Hub now seems poised for a new burst of changes, including a $300 million rebuild of the Longfellow Bridge, a $3 billion South Boston waterfront development and an ambitious vision of a spectacular new Esplanade on the Charles. To get a glimpse of the “next face of Boston,” we asked Tim Love of Northeastern University’s School of Architecture to imagine what the Boston of 2020 might look like. Love is also a founder of Utile, a Boston-based architecture and planning firm specializing in the regulatory, political and design challenges of complex urban projects.
