In keeping with our Festival theme--exploring the valley's agricultural roots in relation to the built environment--we welcome visitors to explore buildings and environments that connect back to agriculture, each in their own way. This is a rare chance to look inside projects and get a first-hand account from the architect about the project's influences and design process. We have a great cross section of projects to share.
Tour is split into two sections, with a restaurant as the mid-day tour for those wanting to purchase lunch. Day is self-paced--visit one project or all! Pre-registered attendees may check in at any location and receive a wristband if they want to visit other locations. You must pre-register for this event. No walk-ins please.
Not all of these spaces are open to the public--don't miss this special opportunity!

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 10th to October 19th, 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.
