The Law Library is pleased that its downtown location has been selected as a site for Open House San Diego (OH! SD). OH! SD is a program of the San Diego Architectural Foundation over the weekend of March 24-25. It offers free, behind-the-scenes tours of some of San Diego’s must-see architectural sites located in Bankers Hill, Balboa Park, Downtown, Barrio Logan, and Point Loma.
“Everyone, including local residents, families, students and out-of-town visitors, is welcome to attend,” said Susanne Friestedt, Founder, OH! SD.
Each OH! SD site has an original feature, or its own unique story: innovative use of materials, repurposing of space, environmental sustainability, energy efficiency, or unique use of public areas. Historically designated sites as well as architecture and design studios, museums, schools, hotels, and high-rises are featured.
“Attendees must check in and receive a collectible Passport at one of the OH! SD Hubs located in each neighborhood,” said event chair Maxine Ward. They can get their Passport stamped at each site they visit. Additionally, all attendees may enter OH! SD’s juried architectural photography competition, which has prizes in a variety of categories.
All sites will be open to the public, while select ones will offer guided tours on a first-come, first-served basis, or may require advance reservations. Most locations will be open 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
