At CitiesAlive San Francisco, we will explore the many links between the roofs and walls of our cities and the critical social, environmental and economic necessities of urban life that lead to urban resilience. SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – AN AMAZING AMERICAN DESTINATION & BURGEONING MARKET FOR LIVING ARCHITECTURE ON YOUR DOORSTEP.
From launching the 60â€™s counterculture, to spawning the likes of Apple, eBay and Netflix, to leading the continent in alternative power technology implementation, the state of California and the San Francisco / Bay area have consistently demonstrated the ability to lead, and create thought and action leaders who have built a legacy of social, economic and ecological innovation. California recently adopted the greenest building code in the USA.
San Francisco is home to iconic living architecture projects including the California Academy of Sciences green roof in Golden Gate Park. Living architecture activity is rapidly scaling up across the region.
With the current San Francisco administration taking a particular focus on urban agriculture and biodiversity, thereâ€™s never been a better time to bring the CitiesAlive Green Roof & Wall Conference to one of Americaâ€™s most exciting and diverse cities.Â For complete details and registration, visit www.citiesalive.org.
