The San Diego Architectural Foundation (SDAF) has announced the launch of its newest educational program, Context, an ongoing forum about the value of excellence in the design of the built environment.
The first program in the series is titled, "Context Volume I: Celebrating Civic Courage." This first event will honor the new San Diego Central Library and those involved in its planning, design, funding and construction.
The evening will be an on-stage conversation between Dr. Irwin Jacobs, architect Rob Wellington Quigley and moderator Darlene Shiley. They will provide insight on topics ranging from the significance of the building’s civic architecture, to the extraordinary public and private efforts involved.
The evening will conclude with a presentation of some of San Diego’s major civic projects that have yet to gain traction.
Jacobs and Quigley will also weigh in on some of the opportunities they feel are critical to San Diego’s continued civic resurgence.
The event is scheduled for Tuesday, April 29 at 6 p.m. with an hors d'oeuvres reception on the Qualcomm Dome Terrace at the San Diego Central Library. The main program will follow in the library auditorium.
