The Historic Resources Committee of the American Institute of Architects, San Francisco Chapter is a group promoting awareness of the value of historic places, structures, and objects through education, advocacy, and events. We seek to preserve San Francisco’s historic resources, thereby contributing to the national and global effort to preserve our collective cultural heritage. Members convene to openly discuss the issues most relevant and critical, and to advise the Chapter on issues requiring action. We collaborate with allied organizations to promote our shared ideologies, increase our knowledge base, and broaden our audience.
Historic Resources Research Scholarship
The AIA Historic Resources Committee (HRC) is proud to offer the 2013 AIA Historic Resources Research Scholarship. This program asks one selected emerging professional to conduct gap analysis research to determine whether the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) collection, housed in the Library of Congress, is meeting the needs of today’s AIA members and to make recommendations for improving its usability and fill gaps in the collection.
