App Store Description

Over four centuries, an extraordinary collection of buildings, neighborhoods, and landmarks has taken shape in and around Boston. Fine examples of virtually every architectural style abound, if you know where to look. Designs by local luminaries such as Bulfinch, Olmsted, Richardson, Cram, Van Brunt, Gropius, Sert, Kallmann, Rawn, and Schwartz/Silver stand alongside projects by national and international greats including McKim, Saarinen, Aalto, Le Corbusier, Pei, Gehry, Vinoly, Holl, Foster, Piano, and Mecanoo.

To help make this collection accessible to everyone, The Boston Society of Architects/AIA is delighted to present the AIA Guide to Boston, available for the first time as a mobile app. Published in three prior paper editions since 1984, the Guide has been described as “the best [architecture field guide] of its kind on the continent” by Time Magazine. The updated digital version includes hundreds of new sites, and color images from leading photographers.

A mobile app is the perfect format for the Guide:
• It is truly portable. If you’re carrying your phone, you’re carrying the Guide.
• It’s smart. Using the location capabilities of the phone, the app can find the sites and guides closest to you, or alert you when you’re passing nearby.
• It’s connected. Walking, driving, or public transit directions to sites are available with a tap, and live links to online resources provide more depth instantly.
• It’s up to date. Unlike a book, new sites and guides can be added to the app as the city grows and evolves.

It features:
• Walking and site tours around prime destinations.
• Coverage of Boston, Cambridge, and the metro area, with particular focus on sites of high architectural interest such as Harvard and MIT.
• Descriptions, stories, and photos of more than 1,000 sites: contemporary landmarks, historical sites, urban features, and parks.
• Guides to 38 neighborhoods, 24 architects, 23 styles, and winners of major awards offer different perspectives on the city and its history.

For architects and design lovers, developers and students, residents and visitors, the AIA Guide to Boston offers a unique – and fun – new way to experience the architecture, history, and stories of the nation’s oldest major city.
