Housing Design Awards

Dedicating design efforts to increasing the supply of housing is more important than ever—but housing design must also foster a sense of comfort, security, and livability. Projects with more than four units—including new construction or rehabilitation of private-sector or public-sector projects—are eligible.

The call for entries is currently closed.

About the BSA Design Awards

Each year the Boston Society of Architects/AIA (BSA/AIA), often in collaboration with other organizations, sponsors awards programs to honor design excellence in Massachusetts, throughout New England, and beyond. By recognizing remarkable achievements in architecture, the design community highlights exemplary projects that serve as inspiration for practitioners. Equally important, these awards elevate the potential for positive impact that architecture has on quality of life for everyone.
