2019 Architecture & the City Festival | SF
Started in 2005 by the San Francisco art and design studio Rebar, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement for revisioning urban public space. The AIASF Mentorship Committee supports the project’s mission to reclaim a small portion of the city for the public realm and improve the quality of urban human habitat while fostering AEC professional development.
2019 PARK(ing) Day
Friday, September 20, 2019 | 10 pm to 4 pm
Front of Hallidie Building, 130 Sutter Street
- 11:30 pm – 1:30 pm: This year, PARK(ing) Day will be joined by the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Featuring a string quartet of: Leah Froyd, violin; Tzu Yun Lin, violin; Natalia Badziak, viola; Abigail Monroe, cello.
- Noon – 1:00 pm: Whether it’s your phone or yourself, the AIASF and Center for Architecture + Design is a great place to recharge. Come upstairs to the 6th floor, bring your lunch and watch this pop-up lunchtime loop featuring, “How to Bend Concrete in 108 Steps” (24 min). This award-winning short film produced by Mahesh Mahdav, follows a designer in his efforts to bend industrial concrete into beautiful furniture. Underneath the documenting of the physical process of manifesting the sculpture, the film also documents the ethos and mental process of ideation, discovery, and presentation — capturing what all content creators struggle with on every project. There will be two, 24-minute screenings of this film.
