The Boston Architectural College

Frederick Noyes, FAIA is a Boston architect who has served the BAC as an educator, former overseer and member and chair of the board, as well as an honorary doctoral degree recipient. He returned to the BAC to share his unique window on modernism, drawing from examples of the mid-century modern houses of the so-called Harvard Five in New Canaan CT, as well as others.

His lecture asked: "Modernism distinguishes itself by bringing a new geometric rationale to architectural order. Where does this lead?"

The Boston Architectural College is a dynamic institution on the leading edge of design education. Located in the heart of Boston's Back Bay, the BAC is an independent college of spatial design, founded in 1889. With over 1100 degree program students, the BAC offers accredited undergraduate and graduate programs onsite and online in Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture and Design Studies, and stresses excellence in practice-based professional education, and accessibility to the design professions. BAC Professional & Continuing Education offers classes and certificate programs for design professionals who wish to enhance skills and increase expertise. Within P&CE, The Landscape Institute and the Sustainable Design Institute bring together faculty and students interested in conducting research and learning on subjects of intense interest. The BAC's central location and strong links with the design community make it a strategic educational center.

MISSION The BAC provides excellence in design education emerging from practice and accessible to diverse communities.

VISION To be the recognized leader in the education of design professionals, connecting theory and practice and engaging educators, practitioners, allied professions and the public.

Founded as a club for architects in the Boston area, the BAC has maintained close ties to the professional design community throughout its long history. These ties are especially evident today in the BAC's faculty of practicing professionals, many of whom volunteer their time to teach at the College, serve as mentors and advisors for student projects, and work on various College committees. It is also evident in the BAC's commitment to concurrent academic and practice-based curricula as the cornerstone of a design education. The BAC has remained true to its founding principles of affordability and accessibility, making an education in design available to all those who express an interest and the willingness to complete the program requirements.
