That is right! A rare double rainbow post!

Today marks the end of the Architecture and the City Festival, presented by the American Institute of Architects San Francisco chapter and the Center for Architecture + Design. I know, that is a lot of links for one sentence but trust me, those links are full of architectural goodness and should be explored should you have a proclivity towards brick, mortar, and black rimmed glasses.

The past month has truly been an amazing experience for me as I further explored the city and its buffet of architectural delights. While I was not able to attend every event, the photos that you see strewn about my horribly placed words are artifacts from my adventures. Sadly, neither these words, nor these pictures, can completely describe the experience which is why I endeavored to share with you, the mythical reader, a double post advertising tonight’s closing night party. So while I do not normally copy and repost, I thought I would make this one exception. See you tonight (details below)!

Closing Night Event + Party

$25 General Admission (if you can please register here as sales in in ~5 hours from this posting)
swissnex San Francisco, 730 Montgomery Street, San Francisco

Can good design solve urban problems? Join us for our closing night party, when three San Francisco design teams will present their solutions to city challenges proposed by the government and civic leaders who can help make their ideas a reality. For the third year in a row, this popular event will tackle issues around the festival theme – this year, “Architecture of Consequence” – that range from emergency preparedness to urban agriculture. This lively presentation at swissnex San Francisco will be followed by a reception under the stars on Hotaling Place, with an outdoor lounge furnished by Propeller Modern and JOBY.

Attendees are cordially invited to our official post-event meet up location, Bix Restaurant, for continued conversation and inspiration.

The Design teams are:

Jody Medich, Kicker Studio | Jay Nath, Department of Technology
“How might we educate the public on the value of open data to help gain support for a growing part of government and civic life?”

Brent Bucknum, Hyphae Design | Dan Hodapp, Port of San Francisco
“How can the changes coming to Pier 27 for the 2013 World Cup improve the waterfront in a way that it becomes an asset for the city?”

Gary Strang, GLS Landscape/Architecture | Brett Melone, California Farmlink
“How do we connect the growing generation of enthusiastic, up-and-coming urban farmers with the skills and expertise of seasoned, rural farmers, who may be retiring or leaving the industry?”

Sponsored by WoodsBagot, Barbara Scavullo Design, Bix Restaurant, swissnex San Francisco,Carrots, Istituto Italiano di Cultura di San Francisco, and Trumer Pils.

Supported by AIA SF, GOOD, Center for Architcture and Design, and KALW Radio and 99% Invisible.
