Muddy River—Back Bay Fens

Project III. For the third and final progam project, we were given three weeks to examine the Muddy River section of the Back Bay Fens park system adjacent to the Museum of Fine Arts. The object of the exercise was to examine the park for revitalization, repurposing, remediation and program potentional.

I explored possibilities for introducing museum programing into the park and enlarging spaces of use for pedestrians and cultural visitors. Creating a landscape that accomodated and was in dialogue with occasional flooding was also imperative.
