I have been involved with the San Diego Architectural Foundation for many years and really appreciate the consistently strong design related programming that they organize and host. Exceptionally unique is the organization's ability to produce a wide range of events that bring together the City's creatives from architecture, planning, landscape, developerment, graphics, art, and plain ol' interested resident around the common theme of improving the quality of life for all San Diegians through the built environment. There is literally something for everyone, screenings of design films, the wildly popular Orchids & Onions awards, the thoughtfully provocative Pecha Kucha nights, and lectures by the region's premier built environment leaders. A group of designers easily can create a heady, exclusive, even intimidating atmosphere for non-insiders-but this is the magic of the SDAF, I have brought my teenage children and my 82 year old parents to events and they thoroughly enjoyed the topics, relevance, and energy-all positive. If you never have, I encourage you to stop by the Foundations web site www.sandiegoarchitecture.org, peruse the offerings and attend a program, you'll enjoy it regardless of whether you are a pro, or just the public.
