spring is always a busy time for the design and building
industries, and this year seemed especially filled with art and
design shows, showroom openings, association galas, awards
ceremonies, and seminars and salons. The photographs on this
page represent just a sampling of events that filled our 2012 calendar, and there’s more to come in May and June. We invite
you to our remaining Design Salons (designnewengland.event-
brite.com) and to check out the amazing BSA Space, a public
gallery for architecture and design at the new headquarters of
the Boston Society of Architects (Page 122).
We are also working with several New England community service organizations, including Friends of the Children
– Boston (Page 125), the Franciscan Hospital for Children
(Page 124), and The Room to Dream Foundation (Page 124), whose missions dovetail with Design
New England’s commitment to mentoring. We again will be honoring Mentors in Design with our
MIDDIES for 2012 in November. Our formal call for entries will be part of a special event June 18
at The Liberty hotel sponsored by Cumar Inc. and the Over My Shoulder Foundation (Page 32).
For more details on this program, see From the Editor on Page 14. We hope you can join us.
