A New Hub for all Things Architecture + Design

AIASF is working with Aidlin Darling Design and a Dream Team of collaborators to bring to life a new 10,000 square foot cultural destination, located on the ground floor of the historic landmark Hallidie Building. The new hub will be dedicated to educational and public programming to enrich, inspire, educate, and engage audiences of all ages on the impact of architecture and design.

“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, AIA
   Principal at Aidlin Darling Design

 

The Future of Architecture — The Center’s Story

Industry leaders, community builders, and AIA members attest to how the new Center for Architecture + Design can make a lasting impact in the 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

Building a ground-floor presence has been a project in the making for years. This expansion process represents the leadership and the generosity of AIA members, industry allies, and individual donors.

Through this ambitious campaign, AIASF needs to raise nearly $4MM to cover the construction costs. So far, over $3MM has been raised from in-kind contributions from generous donations.
