Michael Ford: Hip Hop Architecture

The Boston Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects (BosNOMA) and the Boston Society of Architects/AIA (BSA) welcome Michael Ford Assoc. AIA to Boston for a lecture exploring hip hop as a revolutionary approach to thinking about and creating architecture.

Michael speaks to the impact of three interconnected realms—education, practice, and media—and their potential to raise the cultural awareness of architectural practitioners and create opportunities to increase the recruitment, retention, and immediate contribution of underrepresented communities in the profession.

Mike Davis FAIA, president of Bergmeyer Associates and member of the BSA Foundation Board of Trustees, will introduce this multi-media event. A reception in the BSA Space Gallery will follow.

RSVP

The Hip Hop Architecture Workshop: Boston, a youth program, will be held Friday, August 4. Registration is limited. 

This event is a program of BosNOMA, the BSA, and the BSA Equity Roundtable.

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.
