​NewSchool of Architecture & Design is excited to be the title sponsor of San Diego Architectural Foundation’s (SDAF) Orchids and Onions 2016.

About Orchids & Onions:

Orchids & Onions is an educational and fundraising program of the San Diego Architectural Foundation, a 501(c)3, nonprofit organization dedicated to the education and the promotion of outstanding architecture, planning and urban design throughout the San Diego region.

Orchids & Onions is the only interactive, community-based program geared towards raising awareness and encouraging practical discourse in response to San Diego’s built environment. The success of the program relies heavily upon the citizens of San Diego; public nominations and feedback about the nominations published on the O&O website are integral to planning, growth and future development of our city.

Each year, a jury of design professionals and artists is selected to determine the official Orchids & Onions based upon public submissions in categories including: architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, historic preservation and miscellaneous. The ‘Miscellaneous’ Category encompasses anything and everything that the existing categories do not; and any nomination submitted to the Miscellaneous Category that is determined to be an Orchid or Onion will be recognized in a category specific to that project.

The online People’s Choice Vote gauges San Diegans’ opinions about the state of their region. The culmination is an enlightening and fun-filled awards presentation, promoting awareness and practical discourse about the state of our region.

When:

Thursday, October 13, 2016 Reception at Horton Plaza Park Followed by the Awards Ceremony at Spreckels Theater
