Last fall, Design Museum Boston announced their Street Seats challenge for the Fort Point region of the city. Calls for entry were to submit designs for benches or "street seats" to be installed in the Innovation District in Fort Point, downtown Boston. 170 entries were submitted and 20 finalists will be on display beginning April 27 through October 6. Each one is very unique in style & function. You can see them on the Street Seats page, where their building progress is tracked and a short video for each can be viewed. This caught my eye as a team from Syracuse University is in the final group!

As this area is near my apartment, I will certainly be visiting this summer!
