AIA San Francisco and the Center for Architecture + Design present the annual San Francisco Living: Home Tours, an open house event, featuring five outstanding modern homes. This popular program showcases a variety of architectural styles, neighborhoods, and residences including single-family homes and contemporary renovations. This is the first Bay Area tour series to promote residential design from the architect’s point of view.
