AIA Santa Barbara ArchitecTours: Rediscovering Downtown

The American Institute of Architects Santa Barbara’s 10th anniversary ArchitecTours event will be 10 am.-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, with a tour party to follow, 4-6 p.m.

The walking tour celebrates the fabric of Santa Barbara’s downtown, including historic properties, hidden gems and recent additions. Participants can rediscover the heart of the city and imagine living, working, dining, shopping and playing there.

With myriad conversations recently about the changing face of downtown Santa Barbara and how best to support its vitality, while making it more vibrant, livable and welcoming, the tour is designed to expand these discussions by exploring downtown housing, business and entertainment through its architecture.

Some tour sites will have interactive stations for discovering the concepts that came from last year’s AIASB Make State Street Work collaborative charrette. During the tour, participants can contribute their thoughts, experiences and discussions.

Tickets for AIA members and seniors are $70; general tickets, $80; students, $25.

For more about the tour, visit aiasb.com or call 805-966-4198.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
