2014 Architecture and the City Festival | SF

Unbuilt San Francisco: Exhibition Opening | SF

The 11th annual month-long celebration features behind the scenes tours, films, exhibitions, lectures and more, providing opportunities for participants to engage with the local architecture community and experience design in a myriad of ways throughout the city.

Celebrating San Francisco’s unique built environment and design community, Architecture and the City is the first festival of its kind in the Bay Area.

2014 Architecture and the City Festival
September 1-30, 2014
– Venues all over San Francisco
– Many events are free

The 2014 Architecture and the City festival theme, Home: My San Francisco, will examine the shifting nature of home, the different elements that contribute to its definition, and its relation to the urban fabric. Over 40 festival programs will celebrate the cultural richness and diversity of our local architectural and design community as well as provide a platform for conversation about our changing landscape and its implications for a city in a time of rapidly intensifying housing needs.

If San Franciscans like to describe their city as “49 square miles surrounded by reality,” the visionary ideas that were too grandiose for even San Franciscans to consider remain some of the most fantastic designs for any city in the world.

Imagine the Ferry Building surrounded by office towers, a grand casino on Alcatraz, the city wrapped in freeways and a subdivision covering flattened hills north of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Unbuilt San Francisco will be the theme of the 10th anniversary celebration of the Architecture and the City festival. The focus of the exhibition will be On the Boards: ambitious ideas for a new stadium on the waterfront, renovations of Fort Mason and the new Transbay Terminal Center. The exhibition will also include grand visions that were never built, including an original sketch by William Perreira of a cylinder-shaped Transamerica building.
