Monday, November 14 | 7:00 am – 8:30 am

Join the Northern California Chapter of ASLA for the WILA Walk to explore the SOMA district, including the East Cut neighborhood, San Francisco’s new Downtown, and Yerba Buena District, the original cultural and civic institutional hub at SOMA. We will see and discuss an energetic mix of sleek residential and commercial high rises, repurposed live-work historic buildings, small businesses, corporate headquarters, new streetscapes, and public green spaces as well as a revitalization plan for the original cultural hub. This route will highlight urban spaces, streetscapes, public art, architecture, and master plans that were planned, designed by, and/or influenced by women.

Time and Location: On Monday, November 14, we will meet at 7:00 am at the Host Chapter Booth at the Moscone Center and return to the Moscone Center by 8:30 am. The walk will include a few stops and a refreshment break.

Cost: Free for all registered conference attendees

What to Bring: This walk will be in person, but we will be using Zoom so that all attendees can hear the speakers, so please bring your phone and a set of earbuds/headphones to listen in. The Zoom access information will be available in the conference mobile app. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring a jacket. Please remember to follow all traffic laws during this event.

WILA Walk Organizers: Wendy Mok, ASLA, and Colette Curran, Associate ASLA
