    2022 TIMELINE

    • Friday, March 18, 11:59 PM (Pacific Time): Deadline for submissions proposal
    • March 21 – 31: Review process
    • Friday, April 1: Accept/Decline notifications 

    Co-presented by the Center for Architecture + Design in collaboration with AIA San Francisco, the annual Architecture + the City Festival celebrates San Francisco’s built environment through a variety of behind-the-scenes programs, walking tours, home tours, literature, exhibitions, and presentations. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Home Tours program has been revamped. Questions? Contact info@aiasf.org.


    The following are suggested topics to consider when submitting a program proposal. View the 2021 Architecture + the City Calendar of Events for inspirations.

    • What has been the narrative of architecture and design amidst a global pandemic?
    • How has architecture impacted you and the (re)use of space?
    • How have you stayed connected during a time of separation and what types of architecture and design have you found inspiration?
    • What challenges continue to be part of housing, climate change, economic and health equity?
    • How do we design with connection in mind, that is human-centered and focuses on health, inclusivity and resilience?
    • How can we seamlessly connect the present urban community to empower a more deliberate, livable San Francisco?

    Each year the festival explores and reveals the many layers of San Francisco and how ­architecture and design play a key role in the ever-changing urban landscape. We look forward to hearing your programming ideas that reflect the current narrative.
