Presenters at Intersections symposium talk participatory design
Climate change continues to threaten communities worldwide. Issues of racial and economic equity are causing many to re-evaluate practices that have been customary for centuries. And Boston has its first elected female mayor of color. At this crucial moment, the BSA is hosting "Intersections: Equity, Environment + The City" in conjunction with BSA Women in Design and BosNOMA.

October is World Architecture Month and we're gearing up to celebrate for the whole month. Discover ways you can participate, whether it's by engaging with us on social media, delving into our treasure trove of past exhibitions and content, or learning about upcoming events and programs.
Presenters for Wagdy Anis Symposium Talk Building Science
The time is fast approaching for the BSA's second annual Wagdy Anis Symposium on Building Science. Ahead of the event, the BSA asked speakers to share their thoughts on the future of building science, their memories of Anis, and what they're most anticipating about the two-day symposium.
Building the will around existing buildings as climate solutions
We cannot meet our climate goals without utilizing our greatest built and cultural assets: existing buildings. With many cities aiming to become carbon-free by 2050—and, in Boston, with 85 percent of the floorspace the city will need already built—we must embrace existing buildings as critical to climate action. Throughout the summer, the BSA community explored approaches to existing buildings as climate solutions, and underscored the urgency with which we need to develop and share strategies in order to respond to our climate crisis. Check out conversations on a variety of project types, find strategies and solutions for your work, and share with your colleagues and clients!
The Wagdy Wall
In the 1990s, Wagdy Anis developed a high-performance wall section known among his colleagues as the Wagdy Wall. For the past two decades, versions of this wall have been implemented successfully throughout the design and construction industry. Join us September 22–23 for the Wagdy Anis Symposium on Building Science, a two-day hybrid symposium in celebration of recent innovations across the building enclosure field.
