Abstract: The layout of the Urban Understory revolves around a large, circular boardwalk "Core" at the central void space created by the I95/395 superstructure. Primary and secondary pathways are anchored to structural pylons, float on the water or hang from the highway substructure. this interconnected urban system not only links physical sites, but also promotes interaction between urban users and new urban ecologies -- enhancing the quality of urban life.
