Community Coffee: Innovation in Urban Design

Community Coffee: Innovation in Urban Design, hosted jointly by District Hall and the Boston Society of Architects/AIA (BSA), is an opportunity to share best practices, come together around questions and projects, and build connections in the urban design community. All are welcome, including individuals in or interested in the urban design community, architects, engineers, and planners.

Community Coffees are designed to bring together stakeholders in particular sectors of the innovation community to deepen relationships and inspire creative collaborative. Each coffee focuses on a different sector or subset of the innovation community in Boston. Please join District Hall and the BSA for this inaugural Community Coffee on Thursday, August 31, 2017 at 8:30am.

The Boston Society of Architects/AIA is the co-facilitator for August. The BSA is committed to professional development for its members, advocacy on behalf of great design, and sharing an appreciation for the built environment with the public at large.

District Hall, a program of the Venture Café Foundation, is a not-for-profit civic innovation center, public workspace, and event venue designed to inspire innovation, build community, and make great ideas happen.

Your registration includes acceptance of the BSA Space photo release and consent policy. Registrants to this event will be added to the BSA Space mailing list for updates on future public programs and exhibitions. Registrants may unsubscribe at any time. Email addresses will not be shared or sold to third parties.


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.
