Architecture and the City Festival 2009

>> Friday, August 28, 2009

The 6th Annual AIA SF Architecture and the City Festival is coming up!  The nation's largest architectural festival boasts a schedule filled with tours, bike rides, lectures, and LOTS more!  The theme this year is Everday, Design which "celebrates the many smart, ingenious and unexpected ways design impacts our daily lives, unveiling the unseen hand of the designer in everything from civic and institutional works to landscaping and residential design."

Here are just a few of the amazing architectural buildings you can tour this year:
The DELICIOUS Stable Cafe in the Mission (by architect Malcom Davis)...a renovated old stable building turned coffee shop/cafe and office/work space.  
I looove the interior of Stable's my idea of perfection: old meets new and LOTS of natural elements and WOOD (hello amazing beams!).
Then there's this AMAZING Victorian renovation in Bernal Heights (by architect Studio Sarah Willmer Architecture)
This Victorian remodel in the Haight (by Mork-Ulnes Design) is fantastic!  I am obsessed with the eaves and dormer windows and the exposed brick....siiiiiiiigh!
And then there's the Ames Alley Cottage (by Boor Bridges Architecture), which used to be home to Betty Mae's School of Tap for over 30 years begining in the 1940's!
This year there will also be a tour of one of my favorite local ceramic studios: Heath Ceramics in Sausalito, which is celebrating it's 50th Anniversary.   
Sign me up!  For more info on all of the events click here.  There are seriously SO MANY amazing tours and lectures and bike rides and even the new series: Dining by Design, where you can sign up to have a "dinner focused on urban architecture" with a meal prepared with all local ingredients by Chef Nicole LoBue.  YUM!
