ArchitectureBoston, a quarterly publication of the Boston Society of Architects, explores the ways architecture influences and is influenced by our environment and our society.
A benefit of membership in the BSA, ArchitectureBoston is also distributed to AIA members throughout New England as well as to allied professionals (engineers, landscape architects, interior designers, lawyers), members of the construction industry, community and business leaders, politicians and policy makers, design schools, public libraries, media representatives, and subscribers.

ArchitectureBoston is a themed “ideas” magazine. Unlike many other architecture publications, we do not typically feature individual projects.
We welcome stories that connect architecture to social, cultural, political, environmental, economic, or business trends. We avoid stories that are primarily self-promotional or “advertorials.” Provocative ideas, original thinking, fresh observations, and even a touch of irreverence are our goal.
Proposals for articles, opinion pieces, and reviews (books and other media) are always welcome. Our contributors are not necessarily architects, and in the past have included politicians, social workers, ministers, engineers, lawyers, photographers, students, and academics. Some stories are specifically about Boston or the New England region, but many stories are of general interest. Story pitches from contributors in other regions are welcome.
As in pitching stories to any publication, read and analyze a few issues to understand our style, audience, and format. The best approach is to query the editor with a story idea, which allows us to help shape the story and saves you from wasting time on a speculative article that may not meet our editorial needs. If you haven't written for us, please include non-returnable writing samples and a short résumé. Letters with e-mail addresses will receive more timely responses. Query letters may be sent to: Renée Loth, Editor, ArchitectureBoston, 290 Congress Street, Suite 200, Boston, MA 02210-1038. E-mailed submissions are preferred.
