2017 Architecture + the City Festival Artwork
by Jennifer Clifford

AIA San Francisco and the Center for Architecture + Design commissioned celebrated local artist Jennifer Clifford to create artwork embodying the festival's theme and spirit of imagination and discovery across the design industries. Limited to 50 copies, the artist-signed, hand-numbered, special edition print is available for purchase for $75.

The general concept behind the image created for the 14th Architecture + the City festival poster, is an attempt to reveal the many hidden layers of San Francisco. The upward movement of the image created follows a path, "the secret stairs", which serves as the gateway to connect the hidden details of San Francisco (found in the festival program), to the present urban community, to empower a more conscious and sustainable future.

2017 Limited Edition Tote
Artist Jennifer Clifford's beautiful print commemorating the 14th annual Architecture + the City festival’s Secret City theme is also available as a limited edition tote bag for $40; the perfect place for you to store your own secrets!
