"Hint to the water front." Boston is a waterfront city, surrounded by ocean, channels, rivers... Historically, this site was near the water body. However, with the rapid industrial development, it was landlocked has lost its water front feature. Though the site is only 2-minute walk to harbor walk, how can people get the sense of water bodies, especially thosewho are not resident?

 

Because the physical distance cannot be changed. So my proposal is to create the water phenomenon connection in order to shorten the visual distance between the site and water body. Meanwhile create this landmark to enhance the harbor walk system.
