This program is co-sponsored by BSA/SCUP Roundtable and BSA Urban Design Committee.

What projects are eligible?

Projects are assessed in two distinct categories:

Urban Design: Projects that shape the public realm in the form of historic preservation projects, landscape design, new community design plans, permanent or time-limited public art, public open space plans, regional plans, transit-oriented projects, urban infill projects, and waterfront planning projects.

Campus Planning: Projects that articulate and document a proposed arrangement of buildings, landscapes, and infrastructure in support of an institution’s purpose, programs, priorities, and physical presence.

Unimplemented or unbuilt urban design projects are eligible if they meet the other applicable requirements of this program, but projects must have an actual, identifiable client.

Projects honored by prior Campus and Urban Planning Awards juries are ineligible, as is work done by this year’s jurors or their firms.

Who is eligible to submit?

Anyone is eligible to submit. Massachusetts AIA member firms receive special pricing.

Where must eligible projects be located?

Projects by New England planning professionals may be located anywhere.

Projects by others must be located in New England.​

When must eligible plans or designs have been completed?

Projects must have been completed between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2017.

How do I submit my project?

Visit the BSA Design Awards submission page, create an account, and submit. Submissions are due by 11:59 PM on the deadline.

How much is the entry fee?

Massachusetts AIA member firms pay $150 for their first submission and $100 for subsequent submissions.

Nonmembers pay $250 for their first submission and $200 for subsequent submissions.

How are projects judged?

The judging criterion is design excellence as defined by the jury. In the category of campus planning, evidence of how well the plan expresses implementation strategies, phasing, heritage, and vision may also be considered.
