Every year, the BSA Design Awards program recognizes excellent work. Though 2020 was a year of change, the quality of the work submitted to the Design Awards program remained as remarkable as ever. The BSA is pleased to announce the winners for the 2020 BSA Design Awards.

Each of these projects will be celebrated at the BSA Awards Gala on Thursday, January 21, 2021. Special thanks to this year's Gala sponsors: Gold Sponsor Huber; Silver Sponsors Copley Wolff Design Group, Crown Point Cabinetry, DiCicco Gulman & Company, EPIC Metals, Hanover Architectural Products, Lam Partners, and Robert Benson Photography; and Bronze Sponsors Acentech, Best Tile of New England, Dimeo, Glenview Doors, Microsol Resources, NorthLight IT, and Shepley Bulfinch.

The BSA Design Awards are an opportunity to take stock of the architectural accomplishments of our community, including excellent design work, collaboration across disciplines, and investment from committed clients. This year's juries reviewed a competitive pool of submissions in each category, and made difficult decisions. The projects they chose to award exemplify all the potential that architecture has to innovate design and systems, foster community, build sustainably, and move toward greater equity and inclusion on our built environment.

Please join the BSA in congratulating the teams behind these winning projects, and learn more about them at the Gala.
