We Design Together

Through the Boston Society of Architects Foundation, We Design Together directly complements a Boston School Department's Kindergarten unit called Construction.

This program will bring architects into classrooms to work with students on the Our Boston phase of the unit. In Our Boston, children begin to use the Design Process to analyze, research, and offer possible solutions to challenges they see facing their city.

The goals of the program include:

  • raising awareness and appreciation of architecture and design to children who may have never heard of it
  • allowing architects to teach their unique skill sets (design thinking and collaboration)
  • assisting the Boston Public Schools (BPS) with meeting its goal of introducing students at an early age with community members representing multiple life opportunities
