Serving the Bay Area for more than a century, the American Institute of Architects, San Francisco Chapter, one of the largest of the AIA's nearly 300 chapters, represents more than 2,000 members in San Francisco and Marin counties. Headquartered in the historic Hallidie Building—America's first glass-curtain-wall building, designed by Willis Polk and completed in 1917—AIA San Francisco is the Bay Area’s leading destination for architecture and design. As a resource for our members and the general public, AIA San Francisco strives to improve the quality of life in the Bay Area by promoting architecture and design. We further this goal through community involvement, education, advocacy, public outreach, member services, and professional excellence. Each month AIA San Francisco offers professional development and networking opportunities as well as public forums, tours, lectures, and gallery exhibitions that provide architects and design enthusiasts with many opportunities to explore the local built environment.
