Recycle. Rethink on sustainable marketing, a competition to design street seating for Boston’s booming Fort Point Channel, and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to use design to build community and increase the livability of the South Boston Waterfront, home to the city’s burgeoning Innovation District.
