Architects on a field trip: Volunteers teach kindergartners about design
Architecture is everywhere, and you can find Boston Society for Architecture members almost anywhere, too, even in the classroom. They were there this past spring, and no, they weren't lost. They belonged to a team of volunteers who visited classes in Boston and Cambridge to encourage young children to think more expansively about their neighborhoods and communities.
2022 BSA Design Awards
The BSA Design Awards program celebrates innovation in the built environment, and the unique power of architecture to not only design buildings and spaces, but to improve the quality of life for the residents of Greater Boston.
Submit your work for consideration for our awards, which span architectural design, technical ability, environmental response, and social impact. Join us as we build a just and sustainable Boston, together.
Planning for a Vibrant Future
The BSA has presented an exciting vision for its work over the next five years—a plan for tackling two of the greatest challenges of our time: climate change and systemic inequity.
The BSA will be leading on two critical initiatives: Advancing Architecture by empowering architects to do their best work and lead on climate and equity, and launching an Action Lab/Accelerator to develop design, climate, and equity solutions that serve as global models.
Find out how you can get involved, and join us on this journey! Together, we can create the world we all want to live in.
