CBA was mentioned in Tournesol Siteworks' blog post about the Sidney Research Campus in Cambridge, MA. The landscape, installed by Brightview, features custom contemporary benches in a linear plaza space. CBA collaborated with Arrowstreet Inc. on the bench design, and the site also includes outdoor ping pong tables, pedestrian scale lighting by Forms+Surfaces, a new Hubway bike share station, and concrete unit pavers by Unilock.
