AIASF’s Mentorship Committee invites artists, architects, designers, construction industry members, students and activists to participate in a special edition of PARK(ing) Day organized as part of Architecture + the City. The annual event calls attention to the need for more urban open space by converting a metered parking space into a temporary public intervention for one day. This year's festival theme, We the Cityaims to explore how cultural diversity and connectivity inspire and inform the built environment. From the Dogpatch to the Outer Sunset -- San Francisco is a unique, diverse, and multi-generational mosaic. What connects (or disconnects) us? How will we reinforce keeping our city livable and sustainable? 

Join the Mentorship Committee to build a collaborative installation in front of the Hallidie Building below AIASF headquarters, or submit independent installations in the city of San Francisco.

A people’s vote by festivalgoers will name the best installation based on design, concept and overall experience expressing the “We the City”. 

Wednesday, August 28, 5 PM: Deadline to register your group for review consideration Contact Jing Liu, for more information. 

Friday, September 20, 10:00 AM - 4 PM: PARK(ing) Day 2019 (front of Hallidie Building, 130 Sutter Street) and location of your choice for independent installations.

Group registrants: please follow the online registration form and let us know you are a group, your ideal installation location and  main contact. You don’t need to figure out everything at the time of registration, but please keep us posted with any changes.

PARK(ing) Day was started in 2005 by the San Francisco art and design studio Rebar and has evolved into a global movement for revisioning urban public space. The AIASF Mentorship Program supports the project’s mission to reclaim a small portion of the city for the public realm and improve the quality of urban human habitat while fostering AEC professional development.
