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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
