About the Design Awards

Each year the BSA, often in collaboration with other organizations, sponsors awards programs to honor design excellence in Massachusetts, throughout New England and elsewhere. Design awards celebrate excellent architecture and reward clients for investing in it. By honoring the outstanding achievements of our peers, we are reminded that all building industry professionals have the opportunity to positively affect their communities and the way we live.

About the BSA

The Boston Society of Architects is committed to professional development for our members, advocacy on behalf of great design, and sharing an appreciation for the built environment with the public at large.

Established in 1867, the BSA today consists of more than 3,500 members and produces a diverse array of programs and publications, including ABX and ArchitectureBoston.

A chapter of the American Institute of Architects, it is a nonprofit, professional-service organization.

The BSA is located at BSA Space. BSA Space features more than 5,000 square feet of gallery space for creative explorations of the potential of design to inspire, create community and transform the world we inhabit. BSA Space is also home to the BSA Foundation (formerly the Boston Foundation for Architecture).
