OH! San Diego

Open House San Diego
Celebrating architecture, urban design & the built environment

Take a Look Back at Open House 2023

Each year Open House San Diego (OH! SD) provides a behind-the-scenes look at notable architecture, public spaces, and more with guided and self-guided tours across select San Diego area neighborhoods. For 2023, OH! SD tour sites invited the public in to explore a unique variety of buildings and spaces in Downtown, Barrio Logan, Coronado, and National City.

While the 2023 OH! SD weekend has ended, you can still explore the neighborhoods on your own, both virtually and through self-guided tours.

Explore via the website or app:

  • Self-guided tours: Guide available via ArchiMaps for iPhone or Android, or via the OH! website. Or if you prefer a hard copy, you can download our printable list to use on the go. These guides will lead you to the award-winning architecture, historical points of interest, public spaces, and the hidden gems that distinguish each neighborhood. Please keep in mind that you will only be able to access the exterior of some sites, while others are generally open to the public.
  • Videos and Virtual Tours: For armchair travelers, OH! offers a selection of video tours and behind-the-scenes views from previous years including the Rob Wellington Quigley-designed Ocean Discovery Institute; a virtual hardhat tour of the recently completed mixed use development in National City, Parco; a guided tour of Little Saigon; virtual hike in the City Heights Canyons Loop Trail; and more. Explore OH! SD 2021 and OH! SD 2022 to take your virtual tour.
  • Educational videos: Learn how to take great architectural photographs with a series of photography tutorials. Kids and adults alike can learn the basics of architectural sketching with architect-guided KidSketch tutorials on how to sketch Open House sites including the Lincoln Acres Library, National City Aquatic Center, and Ocean Discovery Institute.
