The EBC Award for Climate Change Project of the Year is awarded to the renewal of Langone Park & Puopolo Playground in recognition of the interdisciplinary approach to designing for climate change resulting in a signature waterfront park in the City of Boston. The project provides critical, equitable, and climate-resilient active and passive recreation opportunities to a diverse, multi-generational population and the resilient solutions reflect an innovative combination of climate adaptation and mitigation considerations with high design value. The project acts as a proof of concept for the City of Boston’s commitment to Climate Resilient Design and serves as a testament to sustainable development and resiliency.
