What’s a charrette? A charrette is a way for design professionals to get together to come up with solutions to a problem, such as “What might a Mill River Greenway look like?” It’s a collaborative process in which landscape architects work together in a short time frame to present ideas.
On the evening of April 18th, a group of landscape architects from the Western Massachusetts Section of the Boston Society of Landscape Architects will gather in Florence with a small group of local citizens to develop ideas for different parts of the Mill River from Williamsburg to downtown Northampton. The results will be presented in Williamsburg the first week of May and in Northampton at the Mill River Greenway Initiative party on May 10th from 5:00-7:00 at Pedal to Properties on Strong Street.
