D Street Lab, Boston
The Lawn on D
A first-of-its-kind outdoor interactive space in Boston, The Lawn on D is an experimental landscape that brings together different communities, audiences and area residents for innovative programming and events in the epicenter of the Innovation District and South Boston neighborhood. The trial landscape will offer opportunities in an interactive environment to create a unique Boston experience. The Lawn on D will be open for approximately 18 months beginning in August with seasonally changing programming. With direct feedback and ideas from the community sourced during the experimental phase, the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA) will develop plans and programs for a year-round space that will further entrench the BCEC in Boston.
