Sense of Place


Need a place to rest your feet AND charge you phone while takeing a break from the hustle and bustle of Downtown Boston? Thanks to a partnership between the City of Boston, the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, and the MIT Media Lab, you can do just that. Located at the RFKG North End Park, this urban prototype bench installation by Seat-e brings practical convenience powered by renewable energy to the streets of Boston. Solar panels power both the USB charging port and embedded LED lights that add a public art element throughout evening hours. This unique park feature will be on display for the rest of 2013 (weather permitting) and will hopefully lead to additional locations in the spring.
