Architectural Tour to Build on Theme of Living with Water

American Institute of Architects, Santa Barbara Chapter is calling for AIA member projects to be featured in the 9th Annual ArchitecTours Event celebrating the theme Living with Water.

The goal of the tour is to demonstrate how water can be successfully integrated into the built environment.

The community benefits not only when water is managed as a limited resource, but also when water creates a multi-sensory experience within a structure, landscape or vista.

Since water can be managed and used in numerous ways, entrants are urged to be creative in demonstrating how a project can utilize, showcase and/or conserve water.

Opportunities are abundant and inspire future forward thinking around water as a resource for all.

Featured architects must be involved in shaping the tour as a requirement for inclusion and a representative of their 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 crafts people an opportunity to demonstrate products, quality workmanship, and installations during the tour.

For more information and to submit a completed project for consideration, click here.

Project applications are due by 5 p.m. Friday, April 28. Only complete applications will be considered.

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!
