Picturing Resiliency

San Francisco Bay & Beyond

This is an Architecture and the City Event

This program features short films on the subject of Urban Resiliency, featuring short films from the recent Bay Area’s Resilient by Design Competition, New York’s Rebuild by Design Competition, and the National Building Museum’s Designing for Disaster Exhibition. The films will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with several Bay Area filmmakers, urbanists, and designers involved in the Resilient by Design Competition focusing on how best to engage citizens and leaders in building resiliency in Bay Area communities.

About the Architecture and the City Festival

Presented by the American Institute of Architects, San Francisco (AIASF) and the Center for Architecture + Design, the annualArchitecture + the City festival is one of the nation's largest and longest running architectural and design festivals. Taking place in San Francisco every September, the month-long celebration features walking tours, films, exhibitions, presentations and more that provide an excellent opportunity for all communities to experience architecture and design in a myriad of ways throughout the city.

This year's theme, Future City, has motivated visionary architects and designers for centuries to create architectural works that have inspired generations of young designers and urban thinkers. From autonomous vehicles to equitable neighborhood designs, we celebrate a future San Francisco with more than 30 fun and educational programs complemented by the whimsical artwork that comes alive thanks to Bay Area artist Nigel Sussman
