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.
A Letter from the Presidents on Race & Architecture
Conversations about racial equity have stimulated new ways of thinking about diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice. As architects, we have substantial work to do within our own profession to include, mentor, sponsor, and provide leadership opportunities for BIPOC architects. Our contributions to our clients, our communities, and our world suffer because of the narrow breadth of viewpoints and life experiences within our profession. We need to act now. Please be one the voices to help us create meaningful change.

Join us for a full day of learning more on research in areas that range from the traditional monograph to healthcare design to construction technology to intellectual property.
Equity in Architecture
The conversation about diversity and equity needs to engaging and accessible for all. Educational and interactive programs throughout the year will focus on making Boston the most equitable place to practice architecture. Programming is designed around creating an equitable, diverse, and inclusive practice.
