On July 27, the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) hosted the opening reception for their current exhibit, BUILDing Forward. The exhibit features projects that demonstrate the future of building processes and materials. Sponsored by the Autodesk BUILD Space, the show promotes projects that approach buildings and infrastructure as “socially and physically connected, sustainable, resilient, and beautiful.”
Material tests and plans for the WinterLight Pavilion are one featured project. The pavilion is a Sasaki-led design that will be temporarily installed on the Rose Kennedy Greenway this winter.
