Boston Design Week 2022: The Rocks at Harbor Way: An Insider Tour
Go behind the scenes of Boston’s newest park during this tour with Ariel Foxman, Seaport General Manager. Discover the inspiration behind the park’s design, learn about the team who brought this urban oasis to life, and hear insights about the park’s features and future. Harbor Way’s first phase, a new green space named The Rocks at Harbor Way, offers a memorable open space experience for the whole city to enjoy.
The Rocks at Harbor Way was named after the 250,000+ pounds of locally sourced boulders, also known as glacial erratics, that can now be found in the heart of Harbor Way. A new audio installation at The Rocks at Harbor Way, created in partnership with PlantWave, transforms ordinary trees into master musicians. Using carefully placed electrodes, PlantWave measures the electrical variations of leaves and translates that data into sound. The Singing Trees come to life at The Rocks at Harbor Way through four distinct listening pockets situated around the park, and will host concerts, ongoing musical programming and coming soon – its very own Spotify playlist. This program is presented by Seaport Boston as part of Boston Design Week 2022.
