ArchitecTours 2018 at Anacapa Studios in Santa Barbara


Over the weekend, this year’s Santa Barbara ArchitecTours put on by the AIA Santa Barbara took place at twelve masterful examples of architecture throughout Downtown Santa Barbara – Our Santa Barbara Campus, Anacapa Studios  included!
We opened the doors with a guided tour while allowing attendees to explore and discover all the elements and hard word that went into the creation of the buildings and the spaces between them.

The amount of energy and interest in architecture from the attendees was truly invigorating. See below for photos of the event along with a brief description of our Anacapa Studios Campus.
