    Grand Opening: Center for Architecture + Design

    Join us for this historic moment as the new Center of Architecture + Design opens its doors in San Francisco!

    AIA Member: $85 | General: $100 | Student: $35

    Celebrate the Grand Opening of the new Center for Architecture & Design in San Francisco which will also serve as AIASF's headquarters located within the storefront of the historic Hallidie Building at 140 Sutter Street.

    After years of planning, the new Center opens up street level in the heart of downtown San Francisco. The Center will enable the expansion of events, lectures, film screenings, tours, and gallery exhibitions and serve as a cultural hub for architecture and design, where professionals and the public can connect, learn, and collaborate.

    The street-level space will showcase design-forward conversations and add new life to San Francisco's downtown streetscape. Designed by the award-winning architectural team Aidlin Darling Design, the Center is a public space for exhibitions, discussions and more about all things architecture + design!

    The creation of the Center has truly been a community effort, which has been many years in the making. The realization of the vision for a gathering space where both architectural professionals and members of the public can come together to learn, collaborate, and celebrate design and architecture is only made possible by the generous support of AIA San Francisco members, industry allies, and individual donors. Numerous individuals, companies, and architectural firms have contributed to the building of the new Center by providing financial support, offering their services, and donating products and materials, which has been essential in creating this new cultural venue for San Franciscans of all ages and backgrounds.
