The BSA has highlighted existing buildings as a topic of interest for Summer 2021, featuring events and series that support the theme. Renovation, reuse, and reimagining of architecture within existing buildings is an increasingly large sector of architectural work, due to a variety of factors including cost, sustainability, historical relevance, and logistics.
The opening of the Benton, planned for fall 2020, was delayed because of COVID. Currently in a soft-opening phase, with visits being offered to the press and public by appointment only, the museum is gearing up for an official opening later this fall—details to follow soon.
