AIA elevates 102 members to the College of Fellows
The 2021 Jury of Fellows from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) elevated 102 members—including 3 BSA members—to its prestigious College of Fellows, an honor awarded to members who have made significant contributions to the architecture profession.
Architects Voice Strong Support for Climate Bill & Opt-In Net Zero Stretch Code
The BSA strongly supports the Climate Bill. In partnership with AIA MA, a letter was recently sent to Governor Baker. As we wait for Governor Baker to respond we must also be ready to advocate for the Climate Bill and especially the net zero code provisions. If this goes back to the legislators or gets vetoed, AIA MA and its local chapters will be looking to membership to share their support by reaching out to their state legislators.
Moody Nolan: AIA Firm of the Year
In today's climate of racial reckoning, it's fitting for Moody Nolan, the nation's largest African American-owned architecture firm, to be honored with the 2021 Architecture Firm Award from the American Institute of Architects (AIA). The annual award is the highest honor the AIA bestows on an architecture practice. The award recognizes a firm that has consistently produced distinguished architecture for at least 10 years. This is the first time a Black-owned architecture firm has ever received the award in the AIA's 58 years of conducting the annual recognition.
Home Design Trends & Reaching the Market in 2021
Every quarter the American Institute of Architects (AIA) provides results from the AIA Home Design Trends Survey, where hundreds of architecture firms share current project data to reveal new and emerging trends in residential design, providing an incisive look at the key features owners and buyers want—and purchase.
2021 BSA Awards Gala winners announced
The BSA Awards Gala takes place annually, recognizing the excellent projects and people that make up our community. This year, we held a virtual Gala, and were delighted to see so many familiar names and faces on screen. It was a warm ceremony on a cold night, spent celebrating the work, achievements, and collaboration of those who make up the BSA. Congratulations to all those who were recognized at the 2021 BSA Awards Gala and to everyone who had a part to play in each of the projects awarded!
