New Practices San Francisco is the 2009, West Coast premiere of AIA New Yorkâ€™s annual portfolio competition and exhibition. New Practices San Francisco is a platform for recognizing and promoting new and emerging architecture firms within San Francisco that have undertaken innovative strategies â€“ both in projects and practice. Distinguishing this award from others given to new practices is the attention focused on how the winning firms are uniquely shaped to better facilitate the type of projects that they undertake.
Submission Deadline: April 10, 2009 @ 1:00 PM
