AIA San Francisco Overview
Serving the Bay Area for more than a century, the American Institute of Architects, San Francisco Chapter, one of the largest of the AlA's nearly 300 chapters, represents more than 2,100 members in San Francisco and Marin County. Headquartered in the historic Hallidie building—one of the world's first glass curtain-wall buildings, designed by Willis Polk and complete...d in 1917—AIA San Francisco is the Bay Area’s premier destination for architecture and design.
As a resource: for our members and the general public, AlA San Francisco strives to improve the quality of life In the Bay Area by promoting architecture and design. We further this goal through community involvement, education, advocacy, public outreach, member services and professional excellence.
Each month AlA San Francisco offers professional development and networking opportunities as well as public fourms, tours, lectures, and gallery exhibitions that provide architects and design enthusiasts with many opportunities to explore the local built environment.
With over 50 meetings and programs each month, AlA SF is host to over 2,000 monthly attendees. Our annual Architecture and the City festival celebrates the richness and diversity of our local design community with programs throughout the city every September. The festival is widely seen as a national model drawing as many as 20,000 people to over 50 events.
