Now What?! Advocacy, Activism & Alliances in American Architecture since 1968
The civil rights, women’s, and LGBTQ movements impacted every facet of US society, including architecture and design. Now What?! links the design community to larger social and political movements of the late 20th century, placing design practice in the foreground and engaging viewers in critical conversations around history, progress, and the built environment.
Presenters for Wagdy Anis Symposium Talk Building Science
The time is fast approaching for the BSA's second annual Wagdy Anis Symposium on Building Science. Ahead of the event, the BSA asked speakers to share their thoughts on the future of building science, their memories of Anis, and what they're most anticipating about the two-day symposium.
Building the will around existing buildings as climate solutions
We cannot meet our climate goals without utilizing our greatest built and cultural assets: existing buildings. With many cities aiming to become carbon-free by 2050—and, in Boston, with 85 percent of the floorspace the city will need already built—we must embrace existing buildings as critical to climate action. Throughout the summer, the BSA community explored approaches to existing buildings as climate solutions, and underscored the urgency with which we need to develop and share strategies in order to respond to our climate crisis. Check out conversations on a variety of project types, find strategies and solutions for your work, and share with your colleagues and clients!
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.
