Common Boston 2017 dParty: Utopian Visions

On the evening of June 2, join the BSA Foundation for the dParty, the kickoff event for Common Boston 2017 (#CB17), the annual open-house festival of architecture and design. Hosted at BSA Space alongside, The New Inflatable Moment exhibition, the dParty will feature utopian dreamscapes, an inflatable lounge, and tours by exhibition curator and past Common Boston chair, Mary Hale AIA. In keeping with the theme of Utopian Visions, attendees are encouraged to channel their inner Haus-Rucker-Co (featured in the exhibition) and wear white.

The dParty marks the start of #CB17 weekend festival (June 3–4), which celebrates more than 50 architectural gems around Boston, Cambridge, Brookline, and Somerville, encouraging residents and tourists to consider why design matters, while tapping into unique stories that illuminate our vibrant communities.
