“Architectours highlights Santa Barbara’s extraordinary architectural legacy and the contribution of well-designed architecture to our community. The event also underlines the depth of knowledge and expertise of AIA architects in urban design, sustainability, accessibility, structural improvements, building materials, and historic renovation. On the tours, you will observe first-hand how working with an architect can transform ordinary living spaces into responsive, tailored environments using a variety of design solutions.” – AIA SB
AIA Santa Barbara’s 2016 Architectours has come and past! Blackbird was honored to have Westmont’s Adams Center for the Visual Arts and Winter Hall for Science and Mathematics included in this year’s tour.
Architectours is an annual celebration of Santa Barbara Architecture with a tour of local architecture and cultural identity. Also, it provides a rare behind the scenes opportunity for those on the tour to see the inside of custom residential and commercial spaces- connecting the community to local architecture and culture.
This year’s tour theme was ‘Spirit of Santa Barbara – Past & Present’.
