the lawn on dA first-of-its-kind outdoor interactive space in Boston, The Lawn On D Powered by Citizens Bank began as an experimental event landscape that brings together different communities, audiences, and area residents for innovative programming and events in the epicenter of the Innovation District and South Boston neighborhood. The Lawn On D Powered by Citizens Bank is owned and operated by the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA) and was designed by Sasaki Associates.
