A New Hub for all Things Architecture + Design

AIASF is working with Aidlin Darling Design and a talented team of collaborators from across the Bay Area to build a cultural destination on the ground floor space of the historic Hallidie Building. The new Center for Architecture + Design will be a global nexus for designers to discuss and disseminate design's potential to solve the environmental and social problems facing our community and planet. The Center's bookstore, gallery, and lecture halls will further fill the Bay Area’s critical need for public design education.

Together, with the support of our community, we have the opportunity to create an enduring hub dedicated to inspiring, educating, and engaging audiences of all ages to discover design’s power to improve the quality of our everyday lives.

“Rigorous design, at all scales, is not only exciting but desperately needed. We have a rare opportunity to create a public space that will inspire our community through visual media, as well as the written and spoken word.

– Joshua Aidlin, FAIA
   Founding Partner at Aidlin Darling Design

 

The Future of Architecture — The Center’s Story

Industry leaders, community advocates, and AIA members share why they believe the new Center for Architecture + Design will make a lasting impact on our community.

“The street-level presence will welcome the community to participate in the future thinking of cities and places that are economically vibrant, culturally diverse, and distinctively healthier and more resilient.”

- Kamala Subbarayan, Google, Inc.
  Board President, Center for Architecture + Design

Thank You to Shape Your City Supporters

Forming a more accessible, expanded Center has been a project many years in the making. This expansion process would not be possible without the leadership and generosity of AIA members, industry allies, and individual donors.

Over $3MM has been raised so far through in-kind contributions from generous donations. AIASF still needs to raise nearly $4MM to cover the construction costs.
