Friends of BSA Space enjoy all Boston's center for architecture and design has to offer


Downstairs in the Storefront Gallery: New ways to discover and shape Boston

Our model of Boston anchors a developing exhibition about Boston’s built environment, honoring its rich urban history. The exhibition highlights what’s happening today and planned for tomorrow, including proposed development that may shape the city’s future skyline. 

Upstairs: 11,000 square feet of fresh ideas about design

Revolving exhibitions bring viewers together to highlight new ideas
about design, its intersection with art, and it's influences on our lives. Exhibitions at BSA Space are thought-provoking, often surprising, visually arresting, and always guaranteed to spark a conversation.
