BSA Space is Boston's leading cultural institution on architecture and design, and is home to the Boston Society of Architects. BSA Space hosts exhibits on design and architecture, architectural boat and walking tours, and other programs and events that foster exchange between design and construction, the profession and the public, and encourage collaboration across the city and world. Nestled on Boston's waterfront between the Fort Point Channel and the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, BSA Space opened in the Atlantic Wharf building in December 2011. Boston-based firm Howeler + Yoon Architecture designed the floorplan, using a concept that centers on a highly visible “cloud” ceiling and monumental stairs. These two architectural elements act as iconic markers for BSA Space and an invitation into the exhibits and meeting spaces above. The design was chosen during a 2011 design competition overseen by the BSA board of directors. Commodore Builders provided construction management services in what was a highly collaborative project.
