Space is limited; please RSVP to This event is open to all architects licensed in the past ten years.

As a principal, Adrianne brings more than 15 years of experience in student and residential developments. She is a highly skilled technical architect and project manager, who has led several large urban housing projects overseeing design work, construction documentation, permitting, and construction administration, while also leading the office in the advancement of BIM techniques and implementation. Adrianne also leads in-house staff development and training. Adrianne has been influential in leading Avalon Hayes Valley at Parcel P from the entitlement phase—resulting in a unanimous vote for approval by the San Francisco Planning Commission—to construction, and in leading the schematic design phases of Orchard Park Redevelopment at UC Davis for University Student Living and Bowles Hall Residential College Renovation at UC Berkeley for Education Realty Trust.

Have you been licensed in the past ten years? Are you getting more responsibilities within your firm? Who is your peer group that you share best practices and knowledge with? If you don’t have one, or want another one, come have a beer or glass of wine (and other refreshments) with other Bay Area Young Architects.

We’ll set up an agenda of topics for the next few months based on what YOUR priorities are.
