July 2019 – March 2020
500 Kendall Street, Cambridge, MA
Over the course of nine months, CultureHouse Kendall provided space to gather, added vibrancy, and drew people to the Canal District. The pop-up was a radical experiment in creating vibrancy in a place that was lacking it. The response we got from the community was overwhelming, demonstrating the need for more social infrastructure in the area.
While the CultureHouse Kendall pop-up was temporary, we gained important insight into creating vibrancy in the community. This report, created from months of qualitative and quantitative data, sums up what we learned and serves as a permanent vestige of what happened during those nine months.
