BSA Members at COP26: Architecture's Role in the Climate Crisis
The distance between Glasgow and Boston encompasses 3,000 miles and one ocean, but the connection between the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference and the BSA is stronger than you might think. We spoke to BSA member firm CambridgeSeven and Mike Davis FAIA, Principal at Bergmeyer, about programming at COP26 and how architects can build a more sustainable world.
Support for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal
The Senate-passed bipartisan infrastructure package (H.R. 3684) includes some important policies to improve the energy-efficiency and resilience of America's buildings. This is a positive step forward, but there is much more to do. Contact your Member of the U.S. House of Representatives to urge them to support investments in the building sector in BOTH infrastructure bills Congress will consider this year.
