AIA Santa Barbara Presents 2022 ArchitecTours:  Celebrate Santa Barbara

Saturday, October 1st

10.00 am - 4.00 pm          Self-Guided Tour

4.00 pm – 6.00 pm           Tour Party 

The American Institute of Architects, Santa Barbara is proud to announce its 13th annual ArchitecTours. This year’s tour theme will celebrate Santa Barbara design, highlighting a range of project types that demonstrate exemplary design in our community. AIASB is excited to announce that this year’s tour will be in person after a virtual tour in 2021 and a canceled tour in 2020 due to the pandemic.

The projects on the tour this year include several unique residences; a contemporary cliffside home on The Mesa, a renovated modern farmhouse in Downtown Santa Barbara and two homes in Montecito that share a strong relationship with their natural surroundings. Also, on the tour are several historic building renovations including the former Hollister Family Office building and adobe which now hosts the Appleton Partners Studio and architectural library. Additionally, tour goers will also have the chance to visit two new multi-family housing buildings downtown that offer a range of unit sizes and amenities.

You will receive a tour brochure and/ or app with maps, photos, and info detailing all the projects.  Meet architects and design professionals and discover how design impacts art and art impacts design.
