Spring 2014 Gateway Open House


Makerspace Project Team - Gateway Fall 2013

Gateway Open House + Application Session
Monday, January 27, 2014 from 1 – 3pm
The Beehive, 951 Boylston St. 1st Floor

The Practice Department is excited to introduce a series of new and ongoing Gateway projects for Spring 2014! Gateway offers students a unique opportunity to participate in a range of community-based projects across the spectrum of architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, and design studies. 

At the Open House, students can learn about the Gateway program and this semester’s offerings, meet Gateway community clients, and fill out an application for the project of their choice.

This semester’s offerings include 10 new projects of a variety of scope, scale, and focus: urban design, housing, sustainability, landscape revitalization, interiors, detailing, historic preservation, and more.


Gateway students resolve real design problems for real clients, all while making a difference in the community they serve. Work may include, but is not limited to:
-    Developing real projects from the ground-up
-    Working closely with peers
-    Connecting with professional mentors
-    Meeting and recreating relationships with clients and community leaders
-    Developing the skills of leadership and collaboration

Gateway exemplifies the BAC’s mission of design education through experiential learning and offers the opportunities to:
-    Earn Practice hours!
-    Generate strong portfolio work!
-    Hone presentation, graphic, and communication skills!

Students of all disciplines and backgrounds are welcome to attend Open House. To learn more, visit the Gateway webpage or email practice@the-bac.edu.

Looking forward to Spring 2014!
