More than 80 architectural and historical landmarks will be open for free, behind-the-scenes tours on the weekend of March 24 and 25.
Each site on this year’s list has an original feature, or its own unique story: innovative use of materials, re-purposing of space, environmental sustainability, energy efficiency, or unique use of public areas. They include architecture and design studios, museums, schools, hotels, high-rises and historically designated sites.
Honorary co-chairs of the trademark OH! SD event are architects Gordon Carrier of Carrier Johnson + CULTURE and Jennifer Luce of Luce et Studio. The title sponsor is Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty.
“Everyone, including local residents, families, students and out-of-town visitors, is welcome to attend,” said Susanne Friestedt, founder of OH! SD.
The tours run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both days. The event is free, but advance registration is required online.
Attendees must check in at a hub in each of the five neighborhoods to a receive a “passport” with a list of the sites.
