Gately Square is located adjacent to Symphony Hall along two of Boston's busiest thoroughfares, yet fails to work as a successful neighborhood square. In our master plan, we improved transit connections, preserved local viewsheds, and created a "staying space" to encourage pedestrian interaction. We proposed a multi-modal transit center to connect converging "T" lines, as well as a flexible outdoor pedestrian space that celebrates the local surroundings. I collaborated on programming the square and creating the master plan, along with creating diagrams and sections of the new transit center and programming the public realm element. More of this project can also be viewed on boston.beyondthecar.com.
