This year, San Francisco celebrates the 10th Anniversary of its very own architecture festival: Architecture and the City. This month there are over 40 events for lovers of all things architecture: from an art exhibit spanning four venues to a chance to build your very own castle.

If you don't have enough time to read about each and every event, no worries! I have chosen here the 11 very best things to do at the festival, so you can skip all the research and just go have fun. I tried to narrow the list down to 10 choices, but really, this festival program is so great that I had to add one extra event. So, take a break from your workaholic routine and celebrate living in one of the coolest cities in the world.
Here are my 11 hand-picked events not to miss:
9/04 Exploratorium at Piers 15/17 – Because your inner child never stops loving science experiments.
9/06 Unbuilt San Francisco Exhibition Opening – Mix and mingle before exploring one or all of the venues hosting this exhibit.
9/10 Who Designed That? For the first time, you get a chance to show off your knowledge of design in the following categories: architecture, objects, art, fashion, other. Get a team together now and remember: it's winning that really counts!
9/11 Inner Sunset: Birth of a Neighborhood – How long has it been since you have actually been in the Sunset? That's what I thought…I picked this event just for you, to remind you that the Sunset is still San Francisco
9/17 Culinary Valencia Street – You go to the Mission all the time anyway, admit it! This time, though, please pay attention to the architecture.
9/18 Jefferson Mack Metal – This just sounds cool. And interesting. And probably something you would have overlooked. Take a chance and do something different.
9/20 PARK(ing) Day – This is why we live in San Francisco: a chance to blend art, activism and fun all at once. Enjoy.
9/25 The Human Scale + Meetup with Novedge and Archispeak – Join us at this free screening and come grab a drink afterwards to talk about architecture.
9/26 The Architects’ Forum – Great introduction to the upcoming Home Tours. And don't forget to network with fellow professionals.

Working together we'll be able to come out the other side of this challenging time and be back to business as usual.
In the meantime, the whole staff at NOVEDGE is here to help you.
