BSA President Jay Wickersham FAIA invites you to apply to be a representative at the Now Practice Now (NPN) Summit. This social experiment will convene members from a cross-section of Boston's architectural community to explore how core aspects of practice (CASH, STUFF, and TURF) interact with issues we uniquely encounter today: EQUITY, INCLUSION, DESIGN, TECHNOLOGY, ENVIRONMENT, RESOURCES, and INNOVATION.

Building on the energy of the NPN series, this summit will be held at BSA Space and last five hours, book-ended by lunch (12:00–1:00 pm) and libations (5:30–7:00 pm). You will take part in candid and convivial discussion in small working groups while producing content for a provocative publication on the state of architecture practice today.

Apply no later than Friday, September 28, 2018 by answering a few simple questions about your experience in practice. Applicants will be notified by Friday, October 5, 2018 of acceptance, with a schedule of the day. Accepted applicants will pay a $20 admission fee.


About the NOW PRACTICE NOW Series

Equity. Inclusion. Design. Technology. Environment. Resources. Innovation.

Practice now faces significant challenges. Changes in technology, production, and collaboration are altering traditional modes of working. The NOW PRACTICE NOW workshops explore the means and methods of transforming practice. The series is for those who now practice.

Jay Wickersham FAIA, 2018 BSA president, and the Now Practice Now committee invite you to join us for a series of candid and convivial discussions where together we will create a framework for the culminating event, the Now Practice Now Summit in Fall 2018.
