Practice : Spring 2012
One of the BAC’s great instructor-innovators has compiled this important chronicle of design educ ation in Boston. Written a s a yea r-by-year journa l, this exten sive history of the BAC includes contributions from many involved individuals, offering a clear perspective on the people, the culture, a nd the evolution of the BAC from profe ssiona l-development club in 1889 to the concurrent-educ ation College of today. It introduces such giants of BAC history as Clarence H. Blackall, Isidor R ichmond, a nd Dean Arcangelo Casieri and emphasizes the BAC’s strong representation among Rotch Tavelling Fellows and the BAC’s historic rel ationships with MIT, Ha rvard, a nd the Boston Society of Architects. Many of us have a special c onnection with The College a nd share the values and legac y of the BAC— a place where students learn about design in the context of practice. Designed in Boston will be an important book for us—and for students, faculty, staff, volunteers, a nd supporters — to understand the remarkable contributions the school has made to the profe ssion, our c ommunity, a nd our personal lives. Designed in Boston , ha ndsomely designed to include 350 page s, w ith color illustrations a nd an elega nt binding, will be published in the Spring 2012.
