About the Festival:
The central theme around the Central Valley Architecture Festival is an exploration of the identity of our region; the relationship of architecture and design to our culture, landscape, climate and history.
The festival mission is three-fold:
1. Highlight existing relationships between the region and its architecture.
2. Create an ongoing dialogue to inform a distinct, regional, architectural identity.
3. Facilitate greater transparency with the public in how architects create our built environment and how it impacts their daily lives.
Festival Dates: October 10 to October 19, 2013 Location: Varies by event
Founded in 1942 the American Institute of Architects, Central Valley Chapter, represents the interests of the architectural profession in 17 Central Valley counties.
