IMPACT on view at BSA Space


BSA Space's recent exhibition IMPACT shows how women in design have made their mark on the AEC industry and how far we still have to go.

One of the exhibition features is a video, courtesy of Neoscape, capturing the effect of the WID Award of Excellence has had on the design community and outside world through testimonials from the people who contributed to its creation, development, and continued stewardship.

IMPACT reveals how women have been a force within the design industry for countless years, and that they exist in the names and faces of the awardees, both accessible and aspirational. The exhibition is not about a single woman, but a community of women who are present and powerful, who influence our future world and inspire our future leaders. It is about reflecting back while also looking forward—to the young woman establishing herself in the field, to the little girl who likes to tinker, and to the young boy who may find heroines as readily available and inspirational as heroes. It will showcase how great design can be transformative to communities, as well as how we must inspire and support one another as we strive toward excellence.

View IMPACT: Inspired and Inspiring—Women in Design Award of Excellence 20th Anniversary , on view at BSA Space from February 14 through April 5, 2020.
