Community and Collaborative Design (C+CD) projects at the BSA hope to build relationships as much as they build the environments in which we live, work, and play. Design that encourages the stewardship of places, that confronts injustice, and that fosters joy requires new, collaborative models for action.

Please join this open house to meet the designers, design teams, and other design professionals who will be exploring new models of collaborative design practice to assist the design needs of local community partners.

C+CD projects recognize that the design of the built environment benefits from collaborative processes that celebrate a multitude of voices. In linking community partners to spatial designers, C+CD projects seek to create new partnerships and alliances, building coalitions in the pursuit of transformative change, and transforming our experiences of the built environment. C + CD projects aim to bring good design to broader audiences, to help community partners envision and create new places, and to amplify the knowledge, expertise, and narratives embedded in each of Boston’s vibrant neighborhoods.
