AIACV Architecture Festival: Architecture Matters Design Forum
Architecture Matters Design Forum

A casual evening of discussion centered around the topic of design as tit related to regionalism. This dialogue will explore facets of architectural design in the Sacramento urban area that relate to history, culture, topography and climate as expressed by specific examples of residential architecture. What kinds of residences relate most directly to our sense of place? Do these designs speak specifically to our region or are they merely stylistic representations of a romantic notion?

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
