ArchitecTours 2017 Living with Water

Saturday, October 7, 2017, 10 am - 4 pm


Call for Entries:

AIA Santa Barbara seeks AIA Members' projects to be featured in the 9th annual ArchitecTours event. This year's tour will celebrate "Living with Water". Our community benefits not only when water is managed as a limited resource, but also when water creates a multi-sensory experience within a structure, in a landscape or in a vista. It is the goal of this year's tour to demonstrate how water can be successfully integrated into the built environment. Since water can be managed and used in many ways, entrants are encouraged to be creative in demonstrating how a project can utilize, showcase and/or conserve water. We look forward to exploring the wide range of opportunities this theme will create.

Featured architects must be involved in shaping the tour as a requirement for inclusion and a representative of your company must participate in monthly planning meetings. Entrants are encouraged to express and celebrate the purpose their submitted project plays in the community on the day of the tour. This event also provides the projects' contractors, material suppliers, and craftspeople an opportunity to demonstrate products, quality workmanship, and installations during the tour.

For more information and to submit your completed project for consideration, see the instructions on the registration form. AIASB looks forward to sharing your best projects with the public!

Project applications are due Friday, April 28th. Only complete applications received by 5 PM on April 28th will be considered.

Thank you in advance for your participation.

Register and Submit Your Project by April 28th.
