The Climate of Public Architecture-Expanding equitability for community resilience 

Wednesday, June 7, 2023, San Francisco, CA

The symposium, held in conjunction with AIA Conference on Architecture 2023,  will examine how meaningful public facilities flourish from the character of their communities. Public architecture should be open and inclusive in their forms and respect the histories of all community members. Public facilities are critical not only for the services they provide but must also address community members of all demographic and socioeconomic levels. The symposium will gather experts working in the field of public architecture to explore issues of engagement, inequity, and justice as they influence design, community, and practice. Working within the AIA’s Framework for Design Excellence, the symposium will highlight projects that seek to engage issues of resilience, access, and engagement. Learn more >
