When I saw this house in the distance I thought maybe Dorothy had landed in Boston but then discovered it was an art project.

The Meeting House takes inspiration from the simple architecture of the area’s first colonial settlers and was fabricated using traditional materials and techniques. It manifests as a brightly painted New England Quaker-style structure sinking into the grassy lawn of the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Extending over 14’ in the air, the precariously positioned structure encourages visitors to explore the area’s built environment, consider the fluidity of Boston’s landscape and challenge notions of community while unearthing downtown’s unique past. The project was curated by Lucas Cowan and commissioned by The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy.”
