Each year the BSA/AIA, often in collaboration with other organizations, sponsors awards programs to honor design excellence in Massachusetts, throughout New England and elsewhere. Design awards celebrate excellent architecture and reward clients for investing in it. By honoring the outstanding achievements of our peers, we are reminded that all building industry professionals have the opportunity to positively affect their communities and the way we live.

2021 BSA Awards Gala winners announced
The BSA Awards Gala takes place annually, recognizing the excellent projects and people that make up our community. This year, we held a virtual Gala, and were delighted to see so many familiar names and faces on screen. It was a warm ceremony on a cold night, spent celebrating the work, achievements, and collaboration of those who make up the BSA. Congratulations to all those who were recognized at the 2021 BSA Awards Gala and to everyone who had a part to play in each of the projects awarded!
