Architect and the City Festival

September 1, 2011

While enjoying a cone at Humphry Slocombe the other afternoon, I picked up a pamphlet for the Architecture and the City Festival that runs from today, September 1, 2011 through September 30.

A quick read through shows it is put on by the AIA of San Francisco and has a lot to offer.  While programs were offered at a discount to AIA members, the general is welcome.

Events that seemed most interesting to me were:

“Working with an Architect,” which allows people to drop by (at no charge) to discuss their home remodel ideas on September 17 and 18 at the event headquarters at 2211 Alameda Street;

“(Re)discover the New Bay Bridge,” which is a guided boat tour of the newly emerging east span of the Bay Bridge; and.

“Then and Now – Pier 70,” which is a walking tour of an historic San Francisco pier.

I encourage you to take a look at:
