The San Diego Architectural Foundation (SDAF),

through its annual Context Vol. 4 program, will focus

on how over the next decade well-designed, denser

neighborhoods can improve the quality of life as well

as environmental and economic prospects for all San

Diegans. CV4 will focus on the most personal aspects

of these changes to our neighborhoods-housing.

Through presentations, lectures, panel discussions

and exhibits, CV4 will explore both existing and new

housing types, typologies and solutions, from infill

housing, micro units and shared-living, to secondary

units or ‘granny flats’, and beyond.

Context Vol. 4 will explore creative planning and

design solutions that increase neighborhood

density and will improve San Diego’s quality of

life, cultural and economic vitality. Higher density,

through good, thoughtful design and Smart Growth

policies, when done right, can revitalize our existing

communities and make San Diego a healthier,

savvier and more affordable place to live.

On June 6, 2017, Context Vol. 4 will convene a

panel of architects, educators, developers and

planners who will show, through examples of

both built and visionary solutions for the orderly

increase of density through thoughtful, credible and

progressive design.

About Part 1 | 3-5pm

Where are you likely to live in 2027? Attend this

free and open-to-the-public forum with exhibits

and lectures demonstrating solutions to the future

of development in San Diego’s neighborhoods over

the next 10 years.

PART ONE, a free and open-to-the-general-public

two-hour event will begin with a short presentation

by UCSD researchers, an exhibit of students work

on the solution to population growth then following

a open discussion on the future of development in

San Diego’s neighborhoods over next 10 years.

About Part 2 | 5:15-9:00pm

PART TWO, the open event will be followed by an

evening program that starts with a paid pre-event

cocktail party and ‘Taste of the Neighborhoods’.

The reception will encourage participants and panelists

to interact and discuss relevant issues in a relaxed,

congenial environment.

Following the reception, an evening forum of

practitioners, designers, developers, academic

experts, and civic leaders will discuss distinctive

accomplishments in achieving higher density with

design excellence that can serve as examples for

San Diego’s planners, architects and developers.
