The Future of Architecture

Why a Future HQ? Why now?

AIASF has continually adapted to keep pace with San Francisco’s competitive environment by re-thinking programming, expenses, and services. This resilient spirit is what keeps us relevant to the community we serve.

To become the hub for all things architecture and design, and to meet the demand for expanded programs, AIASF and the Center must grow beyond their current size and capacity and become more accessible.

Building a ground floor headquarters has been a project in the making for years. The relocation process represents the leadership and the generosity of AIA members, industry allies, and individual donors.

“As architects, we have the ability and responsibility to be stewards for our future. We wear many hats - one championing the business of architecture, which allows us to provide for ourselves and community, another for promoting diversity in our profession, and for championing green building principles. Through our work, positive impact and meaningful engagement, our chapter will continue its legacy of shaping the built environment in San Francisco and beyond.”

– Adrianne Steichen, 2020 AIASF Board President

From Pandemic – Comes Resilience: AIASF Center for Architecture + Design in the Hallidie Building

Architect's Impact

Aidlin Darling Design is selected as the Architect to conceive AIASF and the Center for Architecture + Design new headquarters.

With over 10,000 square feet of space, the project to create the new headquarters on the ground floor of the historic landmark Hallidie Building is an exciting challenge for the architects. Aidlin Darling’s leadership and vision will help us meet our goal to expand on community-oriented programs, exhibitions, and gatherings, and embark on new partnerships.

Our new storefront will serve as a beacon for AIA members and allied professionals, and will greet passersby -- locals, visitors, and design enthusiasts – in this vibrant downtown neighborhood.

“We feel that visual porosity is a crucial element in raising the potential of true engagement with the community. With the headquarters new location on the ground floor, there is a great opportunity to visually engage with the public through the façade of the building.”

– Roslyn Cole, Principal at Aidlin Darling Design
