The Santa Barbara AIA’s annual ArchitecTours is a celebration of local architecture. This event draws attention to the extraordinary architectural legacy in Santa Barbara and the value of well-designed architecture to its surrounding community. Equally, ArchitecTours highlights the expertise that AIA architects possess including a thorough understanding and expertise in urban design, sustainability, accessibility, structural improvements, building materials, and historic renovation.
The theme of this year’s ArchitecTours is ‘Architecture with a story’. Each of the nine projects features an intriguing personal or construction story that profile many of the design obstacles encountered during the building process.
The tour will be held on Saturday October 3rd, 2015 from 10am-4pm and will culminate with a festive party.
