Teacher, secretary, or international design icon?

On May 29, 2013, BSA members were invited to BSA Space to enjoy libations while drawing the lineage of their firms on butcher paper taped to the gallery walls. We caught up with a few of the attendees who kindly offered to tell us origin stories from their firms. This week, we remember Jane Thompson Assoc. AIA (June 30, 1927–August 22, 2016). Watch the 2012 BSA Award of Honor medalist tell us about her experience becoming one of the first women in design.

Jane's obituary can be found here, courtesy of the New York Times.
