The discussion is part of the AIACV Chapter's series called "Soul of the City," an engaging dialogue series between the public and the design profession on issues of importance to the community and the region with a focus on improving communication, understanding and collaboration.

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 12 to October 28, 2012
