Public Architecture uses resource publications to share best practices and advocate for public interest design.



Social Impact Design Award
Public Architecture, in partnership with the AIA San Francisco and Interface, is proud to inaugurate a national award recognizing exemplary projects that promote the significant relationship between quality design and social outcomes.

Public Architecture has garnered a significant amount of press, including articles in numerous design publications and major newspapers.

Public Architecture has received local and national recognition including awards from the AIA, Designers of Year from Contract magazine in 2009, and two Holcim Awards for Sustainable Construction.

Public Architecture’s founder, executive director, and board members speak extensively about the array of issues associated with socially-conscious design.


Advocacy and outreach are critical components of Public Architecture’s mission to act as a catalyst for public discourse on issues effecting the built environment.
