Common Boston / back to Programs page »

June of 2017 marked the eleventh year of Common Boston, and the second year of collaboration with the BSA Foundation to produce an open house festival of architecture and design! Based in part on “open house” weekends in cities like New York and Chicago, the Common Boston festival offers unique access to dozens of architecturally and culturally significant spaces and places—many not open to the public, and all for free!

Discover and explore sacred historic sites, sky-high offices, underground entertainment venues, repurposed mansions, hidden infrastructure, unique learning spaces, private parks, and more. In just a single weekend, you can experience all new sites, as well as some of your favorites from the last 11 years of Common Boston.

For all inquiries, please email

This is a program of the BSA Foundation.
