The 9th annual Architecture and the City festival is an architectural festival showcasing tours, films, exhibitions, interactive workshops, food tastings, performances, lectures and more. Taking place every September 1-30 in San Francisco, the festival offers individuals an opportunity to engage with the local architectural community, explore the crossroads of planning and contemporary culture, and experience design in a myriad of ways throughout the city. This year’s programs will again demonstrate the positive impact architects and designers have on our communities by enhancing sustainability, promoting creativity, and increasing our collective quality of life.
The 2011 festival theme is “Architecture of Consequence”. By selecting this theme, the festival hopes to demonstrate how progressive design and creative problem solving can address society’s current challenges and lead to a more sustainable future.
