The Boston Architectural College

Abstract: Luis Callejas presents a series of projects that started based on initiatives of public buildings and derived into unsolicited landscape operations. Callejas will also speak about his latest publication: Pamphlet Architecture 33 "Islands and Atolls."

Luis Callejas is an architect, former founding partner of Paisajes Emergentes and now director of LCLA OFFICE. His practice stands at the intersection of landscape, architecture and urbanism, oriented toward new forms of public realms through environmental and territorial operations. In 2010 Luis Callejas was selected as one of the world's ten best young architecture practitioners by the Iakov Chernikhov foundation, after the evaluation of 133 nominees from 25 countries. In the five years since starting to practice as an architect, he has designed and completed two compelling projects in Latin America for public sports infrastructure: the aquatic center for the XI South American games and the complete renovation of the main soccer stadium in Bogota, Colombia. Currently Luis is a Lecturer in Landscape Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He has been previously engaged as a visiting professor at the Master in Urban Design Studies at the University of Toronto, Oslo School of Architecture, Scola da Cidade in Sao Paulo and UPB in Medellín. In July 2012 Luis was the winner of the Pamphlet Architecture 33 competition; he will be the next author to develop a critical monograph for the PA series by Princeton Architectural Press.

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.
