A Plan for a Vibrant Future

With climate change and systemic inequity posing the greatest threats to our health and well-being, the Boston Society for Architecture (BSA) is taking on the challenge through two critical initiatives:

  • Advancing Architecture: Empowering architects to do their best work and lead on climate and equity.
  • Launching an Action Lab/Accelerator: Developing design, climate, and equity solutions that serve as global models.

The BSA is committed to producing outstanding solutions to the climate and equity crises within five years.
