“Breathing Room: Mapping Boston’s Green Spaces,” was an exhibition on view at the Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center at the Boston Public Library in 2018. It presented an array of historical maps that display Boston’s great tradition of understanding open space as a vital resource for the city and for the region.
As Boston grapples with pressing issues like access, equity and climate change, it is essential to recognize the critical role landscape plays in the creation of resilient places. Boston is experiencing higher seas, warmer temperatures, and stronger storms. As its citizens accommodate more water and heat, the landscapes must be both functional and beautiful. In partnership with the Leventhal Center, the Boston Society of Landscape Architects and NBBJ host a conversation on what our priorities should be as we build upon this legacy and look ahead.
