City Lab Intensive is a mandatory orientation experience for all incoming undergraduate and graduate students. Interdisciplinary teams of no more than 10 students each will work alongside two instructors and will engage in a series of hands-on and reflective exercises centered around the exploration of the Rose Kennedy Greenway and adjacent commercial and residential districts.

Students will engage with one another to explore, discuss, and analyze Boston's buildings and open space over the course of two consecutive Friday/Saturday excursions. Activities and exercises with be combined with guest speakers who have pertinent knowledge and experience of particular sites and/or community development. As an introduction to the BAC concurrent education experience, students will develop a strong sense of discovery and analysis, and a curiosity and appreciation for learning outside the classroom in a personal, applied manner, where collaboration and effective communication is essential.
