Architectural Detective Agency

June 12, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us next Sunday, June 12 from 2:00-5:00p for an experiential, renegade, street-level examination of the Santa Fe Plaza. Acting as the Architectural Detective Agency for an afternoon, we will use urban journaling, sketching and photography as our tool kit. The mission is to discover the quirky, the hidden, and the absurd in our built environment. By focusing on small-scale objects and curiosities, we can gain insight into the City’s evolution and human-scale growth in our surroundings.

We will assemble in Burro Alley (off W. San Francisco between the Lensic and Burger Stand) for a brief introduction and then will disperse throughout the downtown area. Please arrive by 2:00pm so you do not lose the group. We will reconvene at 4:00pm to review tour artifacts and takeaways over food and drink.

Basic drawing supplies will be provided, but we encourage attendees to bring their favorite portable sketching, photography or other artifactual recording devices.

This self-guided walking tour will be limited to 30 participants so be sure to register here to claim your spot! An RSVP is required to attend.
