Located on the scenic Boston waterfront, between Fort Port Channel and Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, the BSA Space is home to the Boston Society of Architects and the BSA Foundation for Architecture. The center hosts several exhibits, architecture cruises, programs, and events, as well as offers tours, that pay homage to and highlight design and architecture. The BSA Space was designed by Höweler + Yoon Architecture, who won the BSA 2010 design contest, and the building is known for its “highly visible ‘cloud’ ceiling and monumental stairs” (“About”).
