Join the AIASF Historic Resources Committee for a tour of the Mining Exchange Building's recently completed rehabilitation since its vacancy in the late 1970s. Designed by architects Miller and Pflueger and completed in 1923, the local landmark is a product of the city’s booming 1920s stock market and was instrumental in making San Francisco the financial center of the West.

The design team will discuss the reconstruction of Mining Exchange hall ceiling and rehabilitation of the exterior, as well as the entitlement challenges and design of the interpretive display. The tour begins at the 350 Bush Street entrance and will include the Exchange hall and entry lobbies.


Learning Objectives
  1. Apply conservation techniques for decoratively painted historic features.
  2. Explain the methods used for reconstruction of the plaster ceiling. 
  3. Meet Planning Department requirements that are part of the entitlement process.
  4. Describe the process used for the design of the interpretive display in the building.


There will be NO WALK-UPS for this program. Advance registrations close two hours before event start time.
