Fall 2014 Student Lecture Series: Rahul Mehrotra

Rahul Mehrotra, Founding Principal, RMA, Mumbai + Boston, presented Working in Mumbai - The recent works of RMA Architects, India as part of the Fall 2014 Student Lecture Series on November 12.

Abstract: Architects and Designers working in India are now dealing with an entire gamut of social, cultural and economic phenomenon that are molding the built environment at phenomenally rapid rates. In the process, the role of the professional architect has been marginalized - for within conventional praxis, the professional does not engage with this broader landscape but rather chooses to operate with the specificity of a site or locality and in the process often becomes disconnected with the broader context of practice...more

Give the Gift of BAC History

With the holiday season now upon us, we wanted to share a unique gift idea with you: Designed in Boston: A Personal Journal-History of the Boston Architectural College, 1889-2011 by Don Brown, AIA Emeritus.

All net proceeds from sales will benefit the BAC Fund, helping to make an exceptional education in design accessible to students of all backgrounds.

Written as a year-by-year journal, this extensive history of the BAC includes contributions from many involved individuals, offering a clear perspective on the people, the culture, and the evolution of the BAC from professional-development club in 1889 to the concurrent-education College of today.

This limited run hardcopy book is 268 pages and includes photographs from the BAC's archives.

Featured Alumnus: Jake Ryan

Jake Ryan graduated from the BAC in 2012 with a Master of Architecture degree. As a student in the Distance Master of Architecture program, he studied from Maine, where he currently lives and works at MAKER Design+Build, a construction consultation group he founded in 2011. Jake is also Founder and Director of the Open Bench Project, a community-based shared learn and work facility in Portland, Maine.

The flexibility of the Distance degree program combined with the rich history of the College made the BAC an obvious choice for Jake. His experience taught him how to be organized, how to communicate, and how to collaborate, skills that have played a major role in his professional success. The program's practice requirement ensured that Jake stepped out into his local community to supplement his coursework, which helped make his opening of the Open Bench Project a success...more
