BFA Project Pin-Up: Architecture and design in your neighborhood

Dropping by the Pin-Up? Consider making a night of it, and take in If You Build It, a captivating documentary about designer-activists who work with high school students in North Carolina to transform their community and their lives. The film starts at 6:00 pm and runs for 85 minutes. Read more.


BFA Project Pin-Up returns this year with a new opportunity to explore some of the projects that the Boston Foundation for Architecture (BFA) has brought to life in communities around Greater Boston. The BFA was created by the Boston Society of Architects in 1984 to enhance public awareness of the built environment and the processes that shape it. The BFA Project Pin-Up will connect BSA members with educators, artists and other BFA grant recipients to discuss recent successes and future options.

The evening will feature a mini-exhibit of BFA-supported projects, as well as a panel of recent grantees, including Valerie Shulman with Common Boston, Sam Aquillano with Design Museum Boston, Polly Carpenter with Learning By Design in Massachusetts, Alex Weber with MassArt, Janelle Chan with Asian CDC, and Wendy Ellertson with Hawthorne Youth and Community Center.
