“I Want to be METROPOLITAN” is a research on mini-metropolises, using Boston as a case study to provide a different reading of the city. The study focuses on showing the efforts that the city of Boston has made in order to grow with metropolitan characteristics while remaining at a much smaller scale than cities like New York, London, or Tokyo. The morphology of Boston has been achieved through different metropolitan interventions that occur at different scales. These are divided at an infrastructural scale, urban scale, and architectural scale. By means of analyzing these different aspects, we can compose a vision of a future Boston, or Fictitious Boston, derived from its metropolitan potential. 

This book intents to create a dialogue that addresses the missing topics in urbanism for smaller, slower, and much more stable cities around the world. 

It's nearly completed, but we are in the process of working with local graphic designers to fine tune the visual aspect of the book.

We need to cover some of the production costs in order to publish it, and that's where you come in! Help us finish the book!
