DURABLE is a design imperative to construct sustainable environments that promote not only long life cycles, but also enduring cultural significance. Crucial to a sustainable architecture is the design of buildings that will endure for generations while also constantly adapting to ever-changing cultural needs. This exhibition examines the durability of materials through the lens of built examples of robust architecture that remains useful and valued despite the vicissitudes of time.
Addressing racial injustice in architecture and the BSA
Two weeks ago, a renewed fire spread through this country and in Boston to solve the injustices of racism due to yet another series of unjust killings within the black community. We vowed to be anti-racist in support of Black Lives Matter. We now call upon the BSA community to address the systemic racism within the design profession and our organization.

A Message from the BSA on Racism
We ask our members, allies, and friends to move forward in solidarity with empathy and support. When designers come together to change the systems that perpetuate violence and cruelty, we will harness our energies to create more just, equitable and inclusive communities.
