The Center for Architecture + Design (the Center) is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to creating a public-focused dialogue on architecture, design, and the built environment in the San Francisco Bay Area. Established in 2005, the Center enhances public appreciation for architecture and design through exhibitions, lectures, tours, film series, and other programs including the annual Architecture + the City festival and San Francisco Living: Home Tours.

AIASF and the Center for Architecture + Design's move to our new headquarters is an incredible opportunity to galvanize the public to experience architecture, engage with the evolving role of design in the built environment, reach architects, and commune with all who are interested in creating a more livable City.

Our Relocation and the Opening of our New Headquarters is a major endeavor and 2021 will be a wonderful time to engage through long-standing and well-attended events. Through our programs, the Center is the platform for the collective voices of the wider design community to come together and be heard.
