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.
Presenters at Intersections symposium talk participatory design
Climate change continues to threaten communities worldwide. Issues of racial and economic equity are causing many to re-evaluate practices that have been customary for centuries. And Boston has its first elected female mayor of color. At this crucial moment, the BSA is hosting "Intersections: Equity, Environment + The City" in conjunction with BSA Women in Design and BosNOMA.
Client Conversations spotlight clients with not only their projects, but their strategies for managing change through development and investment during these complex times. Conversations will provide insight into the capabilities and skills clients look for when selecting a design team.
