Dudley Square: Transit Hub to Neighborhood Hub

Dudley Square

Transit Hub to Neighborhood Hub

First Semester Urban Planning Studio, Fall 2015.  Instructor: Sai Balakrishnan

After mapping, economic and social analysis, and on-site field work, the first semester urban planning studio developed proposals for Dudley Square, an area of Boston that has been historically disadvantaged but is now seeing re-investment. My proposal sought to relocate the unsafe bus terminal to free up the bus station area for public space. The historic bus terminal shed is converted into a farmer’s market at the heart of a new public plaza.
