Student Lecture Series

Each Spring and Fall semester, the student government sponsors a public lecture series that explores a pertinent theme in the practice of design. Guest speakers are carefully selected and come from around the world to share their unique expertise. The Student Lecture Series is one of many ways that the BAC remains at the forefront of design education. The Spring 2015 Student Lecture Series includes guest lecturers Jean Carroon, Jiminez Lai, Alexandra Lange, Anupama Kundoo, Diana Ramirez-Jasso, and Naomi Pollock.

Design for Resilience

On January 13, 2015, the BAC partnered with Rebuild by Design for a discussion on how to ready Boston's ecology, infrastructure, and culture for the future of climate change. The evening featured luminaries from Boston's design world and key players from the Rebuild by Design competition for two panel discussions followed by a reception for the BAC's Design for Resilience exhibition in McCormick Gallery.

Design for Resilience asks us to think, discuss, and take action as we consider how to better connect ourselves to our ecology and our infrastructure to ready ourselves for the future. What will Boston look like in 2050? What will our coastal cities look like in 2115?

We bring this exhibition to Boston to engage and educate ourselves and our fellow citizens about our own urban vulnerabilities; to showcase the power of collaborative problem solving and community engagement; and to highlight the forward-thinking work that local organizations are producing to protect us from increasing risk, intensifying storms, and rising seas.
