DOCOMOMO Tour Day 2017: The Mid Century City

The Western Addition and Cathedral Hill first opened to development in the 1870s and 80s, quickly filling with the urban middle-class housing of the era. Once a center of Asian-American culture, after the events of World War II, the neighborhood became an African-American enclave. By the 1950s the same housing had been deemed substandard, making the area a prime candidate for urban renewal, leaving many of the African-American residents facing eviction. Please join the DOCOMOMO US Northern California Chapter as we tour Cathedral Hill to discuss some of the history that contributed to a modern design in the heart of a Victorian city.

SDN U.S. Conference: "Service Design Within US"

Service design in the U.S. is trending in-house. The first national Service Design Network conference will focus on how service design is evolving as an internal discipline within organizations of all types and sizes.
