Hundreds of visitors will walk through the doors of old and new, big and small, private and public buildings during this year’s architecture and urban design festival. From March 6 through 8, the San Diego Architectural Foundation’s OH! San Diego will offer free tours of nearly 100 locations citywide for a rare, behind-the-scenes look at some of San Diego’s most iconic buildings and places.

Visitors will have the chance to discover some of the city’s newest, never-before-seen buildings, in addition to historic landmarks throughout Downtown, Gaslamp, East Village, Bankers Hill, Barrio Logan, Balboa Park, Point Loma, La Jolla and, new this year, Coronado. Many sites in this year’s event will feature designer-led tours and talks. A juried architectural photography competition will award prizes in a variety of categories.

Opportunities for kids and parents include collaborating with architects to sketch their own versions of architecture at Coronado Clubroom & Boathouse and Wisteria Cottage in La Jolla – recommended for kids third grade to high school.

San Diego Architectural Foundation selects each OH! San Diego site for its unique architectural, historical or cultural value. Sites are hand-picked to represent and recognize the region’s contribution to architecture and design. San Diego Architectural Foundation considers design excellence, the innovative use of materials, repurposing of space, environmental sustainability and energy efficiency when selecting the featured sites. The festival promotes awareness of San Diego’s urban environment and sparks discussion about good planning and design and the critical issues facing San Diego.

Spaces such as architecture and design studios, museums, schools, hotels, high-rises, San Diego Architectural Foundation’s Orchid Award winners and historically designated sites will be open to the public throughout the weekend. Attendees will receive a free map to navigate the weekend events at one of the neighborhood hubs. Souvenir event guides are available for a $5 donation.

Some sites will offer scheduled talks and guided tours on a first-come, first-served basis, while others will require reservations. Most sites are family-friendly and easily accessible by public transit, bike or trolley.

Nearly 350 trained volunteers will be on hand to assist visitors. Volunteer opportunities are available. For more information, visit sdarchitecture.org.

Hello, I just wanted to mention I have not had an outbreak of HSV 2 for almost 3 years now (since the first year I got it). When I first contacted it (did go to doctor and got confirmed) I had a couple outbreaks that year (very painful) and then no outbreaks ever again. Like I said it has been almost tow years. The only thing I can think I did was I used essential oil applications on my sacrum. I did take anti viral meds the doctor gave me for a couple weeks after the first outbreak to take care of the acute symptoms (I didn’t take them for the 2nd outbreak later that year and now this happened in my life I can’t believe this. A great testimony that i must share to all HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS patient in the world i never believed that there could be any complete cure for Herpes or any cure for herpes,i saw people’s testimony on blog sites of how Dr.Ofure herbal cure and sent to them and they were cured. i had to try it too and you can,t believe that in just few weeks i started using it all my pains stop gradually and i had to leave without the herpes the doctor gave to me. Right now i can tell you that few months now i have not had any pain, and i have just went for text last week and the doctor confirmed that there is no trace of any herpes on my system. Glory be to God for leading me to this genuine Dr.Ofure I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony. My advice to you all who thinks that there is no cure for herpes that is Not true, Here is his Email drofureherbalhome@gmail.com OR whatsapp him on 2348162868851

I am the most happiest woman on earth right now, My husband that left me few months ago just came back to me last night crying for me to take him back. dr.unity is a true and real Psychics He brought back my husband" I am Helen Fisher from USA. I have been married for over 13 years, my husband left me for another woman and i wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity for the real spell and if you have any problem contact him he is honest.Here’s his contact Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail. com
