2016 Architecture and the City Festival | SF

The 13th annual month-long celebration features behind the scenes and walking tours, films, exhibitions, lectures and more that address varying aspects of the design and planning process.

Over 40 programs throughout the month provide an excellent opportunity for participants to engage with the local architecture community and experience design in a myriad of ways throughout the city.

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.
