Opening Reception: BUILDing Forward

Don't miss the opening reception for BUILDing Forward. This special event is an opportunity to explore the exhibition while enjoying complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres.

BUILDing Forward, an exhibition sponsored by the Autodesk BUILD Space, explores the innovation around ‘making’ in the building and infrastructure industries—both material fabrication and larger construction.

The exhibition demonstrates the future of making and the radical changes in the way things are designed, made, and used in the architecture, engineering, and construction fields. BUILDing Forward introduces this future as an opportunity to craft a new collective understanding of what's possible in our built environment: how people design, make, and work together.

Through a series of artifacts from prototypes of timber towers to studies on the form and function of glass created in the Autodesk BUILD Space, as well as programs and events, BUILDing Forward addresses three key themes: the shift experienced by the design industry, the blurring line between architect and builder, and how technology is helping designers to create buildings and infrastructure that are socially and physically connected, sustainable, resilient, and beautiful.

Exhibition sponsored by 


The Boston Society of Architects/AIA (BSA) reaches its sesquicentennial anniversary in 2017. That’s 150 years of design professionals working together to build often inventive and creative buildings for this city and for the people who live in it. It’s really quite amazing—150 years of progress, innovation, standard-setting, collaboration, and community building.

Other initiatives marking the 150th anniversary may include: an exhibition timeline at BSA Space focusing on the BSA's achievements over the last 150 years, weekly  essays from a leader or ally of the organization, and plaques to be mounted on design award winning buildings.
