Architects and the Executive Order on Immigration

The Executive Order: Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements, signed into effect January 25, 2017, has reportedly impacted tens of thousands of people. Among those that have been—or could be—affected are architecture firms, individual architects, and design schools, students, and faculty.

The Boston Society of Architects/AIA (BSA) invites you to take part in a conversation on this Executive Order and its professional, academic, and legal implications for Boston’s architecture and design community.

For information on the BSA’s and AIA National’s values related to immigration, please see:

This discussion will be moderated by Nader Tehrani, founder and principal, NADAAA; dean, Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture, The Cooper Union; with legal expertise from attorney Richard Iandoli Esq., Iandoli Desai & Cronin PC.
