Pier Pressure, Jeremy Pi (MUP ’19)

Pier Pressure was a final project undertaken by Jeremy Pi (MUP ’19) in a course titled Urban Design for Planners where he was challenged to develop a design intervention for an underutilized space in Boston. Orienting his work around a waterfront area in Charlestown currently being used as a parking lot, he suggested transforming the pier into a park, and introducing new buildings, greenways, and a harbor walk to draw people towards the water.
