The Foundation was created by the Boston Society of Architects/AIA in 1971 to support public education programs in Massachusetts related to the built environment. Over the years, the Foundation has supported film and video productions, community-based programs, exhibitions and tours, in-school educational programs, research projects, conferences, lectures, symposiums, and other community activities.
