    2020 A+C Festival | Flight Path: Designing New Airport

    Wednesday, September 16, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

    What’s the future of airports in the age of a global pandemic? How are architects and designers creating new airport experiences? How can San Francisco International Airport (SFO) pave a path to the future?

    Airports are among the most complex building typologies which over the decades have become nearly self-contained mini-cities. “Flight Path” looks at how architecture and interior design shape the human experience of airports, primarily at SFO. In its 93-year history, SFO has evolved from what was originally planned as a temporary, experimental airport in 1927 to the largest airport in the San Francisco Bay Area, and a pioneering global travel hub in the 21st century, at once international and infused with regional culture.

    Join panelists Ryan Fetters, RA, LEED AP, principal and design director, Gensler; William S. Duff, Jr., AIA, founder and managing principal, William Duff Architects (WDA) and Katy Mercer, IIDA, principal and regional interior design leader, Woods Bagot, in conversation with Emmy Award-winning former broadcast journalist Sydnie Kohara, founder, The Kohara Group.



    About the Architecture + the City Festival (September 11-30)

    Co-presented by AIA San Francisco and the Center for Architecture + Design, the 17th annual Architecture + the City goes virtual and will continue to offer behind-the-scenes programs, walking tours, literature, live presentations and more that provide an excellent opportunity for all communities to experience architecture and design in a myriad of ways throughout the city. Every September, the festival reveals the many facets and layers of San Francisco, and how ­architecture and design play a key role in this ever-changing urban landscape.
