    AIASF UDIC Walking Tour: Mission Bay Neighborhood

    Thursday, April 25, 2024 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT

    REGISTER $10, Student // $20, AIA Member // $25, General

    Join us and our distinguished and knowledgeable group of speakers for a walking tour about the past, present and future vision for the up and coming Mission Bay neighborhood in San Francisco. Speakers include architects, urban designers and landscape architects whose projects have contributed to the area’s transformation. New mixed-use, in-fill development has led to the creation of a network of connected urban public spaces, each with a distinct character and use. Whether it is a place for entertainment and relaxation or a place to receive the latest in health care, these central gathering spaces seek to equitably service community and regional needs while also incorporating the latest advancements in sustainable and adaptable design.

    Note: Meeting spot will be sent to all registrants; ticket sales close at 2:00 PM on the day of the tour based upon availability; no onsite ticket sales.

    This program is in collaboration with the AIASF Urban Design + Infrastructure Committee (UDIC).
