The Common Boston Common Build (CBCB) is a design and construction competition that challenges participants to design and build a project in response to community needs. Held over 3 days during Common Boston Week the CBCB is open to teams and individuals from all disciplines and experience levels. Common Boston and the Building Materials Resource Center have partnered to host this year's competition that focuses on the festival theme, “Live and Learn,” an exploration of the relationships between Boston's neighborhoods and institutions.
Teams will be asked to work with a local institution to develop design solutions that address specific physical and social needs of the neighborhood. Designed and constructed objects will be integrated into their site with an emphasis on the unique contextual elements and needs of that location. Competitors will be issued a common material- donated by the Building Materials Resource Center which must be incorporated into their design. The Common Boston Common Build demonstrates that even when created in under 72 hours, an innovative and influential response to a real problem can alter the way we interact with and understand the built environment creating tangible benefits for the community.
