S.F. Architecture and the City Festival
Sept. 1-30, 2010 —
This is the opening weekend for the largest architectural and design festival in the U.S. Events include tours, film screenings, exhibitions, design lectures, sustainable programs and more.
The theme of the 2010 festival, “Investigating Urban Metabolisms,” explores the notion of the city as a living, breathing organism that is as multi-layered, intricate and in flux as the human body.
San Francisco is home to one of the largest chapters in the United States of the American Institute of Architects, producers of the festival, along with the Center for Architecture + Design.
The Labor Day weekend features a behind-the-scenes tour of the Old Mint Sept. 3. Special exhibits will also be mounted at the AIA offices, 130 Sutter St.; 3A Gallery, 101 South Park; ARCH, 99 Missouri St.; Blu Dot Collection, 2410 California St., and SPUR Urban Center (Sept. 7-Oct. 29), 654 Mission St.
Additional exhibits will be opening later in the month.
