We the City by Amos Goldbaum
The American Institute of Architects, (AIASF) and the Center for Architecture + Design are pleased to announce the 16th annual Architecture + the City festival September 1-30. One of the nation’s largest architectural festivals celebrating San Francisco’s unique built environment and design community, the festival features exclusive building tours, authors’ series, lectures, panel discussions, and an exhibition featuring Bay Area artists. This year’s festival theme, “We the City” will explore how cultural diversity and connectivity inspire and inform the built environment through more than 30 programs offerings including the highly-acclaimed San Francisco Living: Home Tours on September 21 which will showcase five modern residences in different neighborhoods throughout the City.
“We are excited to bring the community together to explore interdisciplinary design perspectives aimed at strengthening the physical and social infrastructure in San Francisco,” says Stacy Williams, Interim Executive Director, AIASF and Center for Architecture + Design. “As the city strives to balance the needs of a rapidly growing population, we will explore sustainable growth solutions in response to these evolving challenges.”
