Focus on Housing / back to Programs page »

 

Over the past two years, the Boston Society of Architects/AIA (BSA) and BSA Foundation has focused on housing to ensure an adequate supply of urban housing for people up and down the socio-economic ladder—a critical element to the health of our cities. Working with partners in government, business, civic institutions, and community organizations, the BSA and the BSA Foundation have developed a robust array of solutions to meet the challenge of housing affordability. These initiatives cover a broad range of issues, from the details of design and construction to the antiquated planning and zoning that have made middle income housing so challenging to produce.
