Symposium Overview

The Boston Society for Architecture, BSA Women in Design, and BosNOMA are proud to present Intersections: Equity, Environment + the City, a hybrid symposium from November 6–13, 2021 centered around intersectional and participatory design processes.

An inclusive Boston happens when designers think critically and collaboratively with individuals, communities, and agencies within and beyond the world of design. Each virtual session, in-person workshop, and site tour will tease out a thread in the larger fabric of Boston’s built environment, examining the role of architects and designers in perpetuating in/equity through issues of housing, lighting, transportation, and education.

This symposium also celebrates the 2021 recipients of the Women in Design Award of Excellence, whose work exemplifies the best of process, product, and giving back to the world of design and to the community at large.
