Welcome to the Boston Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.

Uncommon Mounument: A King memorial for Boston

14 November 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Venue: BSA Space
290 Congress Street, Suite 200,

Five finalists have been selected to create a new memorial to Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King on the Boston Common. What role do memorials play in contemporary society? How do we decide what to commemorate? What are the design considerations for this work of public art and how it relates to its site and to the history of race in Boston?


Join the Boston Society of Architects/AIA and the BSA Foundation as we consider the shifting landscape of public remembrance.
