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.
The Wagdy Wall
In the 1990s, Wagdy Anis developed a high-performance wall section known among his colleagues as the Wagdy Wall. For the past two decades, versions of this wall have been implemented successfully throughout the design and construction industry. Join us September 22–23 for the Wagdy Anis Symposium on Building Science, a two-day hybrid symposium in celebration of recent innovations across the building enclosure field.
A summer of existing buildings
We cannot meet our future goals without utilizing our greatest built and cultural assets: existing buildings. With urgent aims to become carbon-free by 2050—and with 85 percent of floorspace that Boston will need in 2050 already built—we must recognize and leverage existing buildings for what they are: banks of embodied carbon and material resources, and compelling design challenges. Join the existing buildings movement this summer. With collaboration, collective action, and urgency, implementable and effective existing buildings solutions will move us forward.
