GOOD Design San Francisco

Join GOOD Design San Francisco this Thursday, September 29.

We believe good design can drastically improve daily life in our cities.

Working closely with a team at AIA SF, GOOD has paired four design teams with city leaders from all areas of government to tackle issues around AIA SF’s Architecture and the City Festival theme.

A reception under the stars will follow, with an outdoor lounge. Attendees are invited to the official post-event meetup at Bix Restaurant for more drinks and conversation.
