Magazine Beach is Location for a 72-Hour Design/Build NOW!

2 Oct

It’s not too late to join in! See link to register below. Look for art installations in the park starting on Sunday at noon.

Thursday night Common Boston/Common Build revealed the location of their 6th annual design/build competition: Magazine Beach Park! This year’s theme is “The Places In Between.” Teams are invited to explore the intersection of two vibrant communities, Allston-Brighton and Kendall/MIT, to uncover what such places mean to the community, both individually and collectively.

Teams + Participants:  Register here individually or as a group ASAP; buy one “ticket” per head. You’ll receive an email requesting your team name and team members. Download the form below. Note that this competition is open to all regardless of background, and teams can be of any size. We also encourage “free agents” to sign up and join a team at the kick-off event. Questions? Go to
