The Green Giants of the East Cut tour explores green high-rises and "secret" pocket parks in one of the city's most recently rebranded neighborhoods. Travel back in time at the Marin County Civic Center and get a behind-the-scenes tour of one of the last major works designed by renowned architect Frank LLoyd Wright.

  • #ArchandCity #AuthorSeries
    Read: The popular Authors Series continues with a line-up of exciting literary conversations from authors of select and recently published architecture and design books, including At Home in the Wine Country and Uncovering Race, Place + Patterns of Urbanization.

  • #ArchandCity #Discussions
    Discover: Join in on conversations from an international roster of speakers covering topics from revitalizing urban infrastructure and designing community-oriented projects to pioneering handmade production processes. 

    Kapwa Gardens: Designing Public Space During the Pandemic will talk about how this unique urbanist project transformed from a parking lot into a healing space to help the South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood recover from the devastating effects of COVID-19. Architecture As A Good: Practice As Power, Revitalizing Stranded Assets, brings together an all-woman panel of architects and designers who reflect on their experiences and projects from which they’ve drawn inspiration.

  • #ArchandCity #HomeTours
