Boston Mayor Marty Walsh announced this week the winners of Boston Living With Water. Back in February, I wrote about the finalists chosen to address three sites particularly vulnerable to rising sea levels: the Prince Building, Fort Point Channel and Morrissey Boulevard.

Each winning team receives a $13,000 prize, funded by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management and the Barr Foundation.

Here’s a look at the three winning designs:

“Resilient Linkages,” led by Boston team NBBJ, also received $5,000 and an honorable mention. The winners’ work and information regarding coastal flooding will be on display in Boston Society of Architects’ BSA Space through June 2015.
