American Institute of Architects, San Francisco (AIASF) and the Center for Architecture + Design San Francisco (CADSF) presents “Resilient City: Strength by Design” for the Architecture and the City festival in collaboration with Recology San Francisco’s Artist in Residence (AIR) program. This exhibition in collaboration with Recology SF AIR program aims to showcase the unique realization that architecture has the capability to build up a city as well as be its own opponent.

Recology AIR Program: The Artist in Residence Program at Recology San Francisco was established in 1990 to encourage the conservation of natural resources and instill a greater appreciation for the environment and art in children and adults. Artists work for four months in studio space on site, use materials recovered from the Public Disposal and Recycling Area, and speak to students and the general public. Over 150 Bay Area artists have completed residencies.
