AIA SF | Mentorship Without Borders: An Open Conversation with Craig Hartman, FAIA

Join AIASF’s Mentorship Knowledge Community and hear from keynote speaker Craig W. Hartman, FAIA, Design Partner, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (San Francisco) who will open the 2023 Mentorship Program with personal insight about the influence of mentorship over an architect’s career.

Craig’s most prominent work includes the Cathedral of Christ the Light for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Oakland. It is the first cathedral in the world built entirely in the 21st century. He also completed the International Terminal at the San Francisco International Airport, Harvard University’s Northwest Science Building, and the new US Embassy in Beijing.

In 2001, Hartman became the youngest recipient of the AIA California Council’s Maybeck Award—an Individual Honor Award for Outstanding Achievement expressed in a body of work. In September 2008, Hartman received the Vatican’s Knighthood for Service to Society (St. Sylvester) from Pope Benedictus XVI during the dedication ceremony for The Cathedral of Christ the Light. He is a member of the AIA’s College of Fellows and a Design Futures Council Senior Fellow.

He received an Honorary Doctor of the Arts Degree, conferred by Ball State University, during the school’s 2009 commencement ceremony. He also received an Honorary Doctor of the Arts Degree from DePaul University in 2017.
