BSA 150th Birthday Bash

Boston City Hall and the Governor’s Office of Massachusetts proclaim June 21, 2017 as the Boston Society of Architects/AIA Day.

The BSA turns 150 this summer! Join the sesquicentennial celebration as the summer solstice aligns with the day of the BSA’s incorporation to ring in the new season and honor a century and a half of the architecture community in Boston. Waterfront Plaza will be abuzz with excitement as BSA members and party attendees celebrate memorable milestones and achievements, while enjoying beers and beats. Summer fare will be served, and a Smith & Wollensky cash bar will be onsite.

Whether you have been a member for decades or just love Boston’s built environment, come help the BSA give a toast to its past and kick off its next 150 years in style!

This will be a 21 and over event.

This event will take place outside at Waterfront Plaza between 280 Congress Street and the Harborwalk.


Your registration includes acceptance of the BSA Space photo release and consent policy.

The Boston Society of Architects/AIA (BSA) reaches its sesquicentennial anniversary in 2017. That’s 150 years of design professionals working together to build often inventive and creative buildings for this city and for the people who live in it. It’s really quite amazing—150 years of progress, innovation, standard-setting, collaboration, and community building.

Other initiatives marking the 150th anniversary may include: an exhibition timeline at BSA Space focusing on the BSA's achievements over the last 150 years, weekly  essays from a leader or ally of the organization, and plaques to be mounted on design award winning buildings.
