Open House San Diego

Celebrating architecture, urban design and the built environment.  
OH! San Diego 2021 is coming March 5 – 12, 2020.

Thank you to all that attended OH! San Diego 2020 

By all measures it was a great success. In one weekend, OH! San Diego hosted over 8,500 site visits to 89 sites in 9 San Diego neighborhoods. The most popular site (Conrad Prebys Center for the Performing Arts) received over 600 visitors!  OH! 2020 was supported by a team of over 350 dedicated volunteers, site hosts, and of course, committee members – we cannot thank you enough.

Get ready for OH! San Diego 2021

COVID-19 has brought our communities together in ways no one could have expected. Living, working, and playing closer to home has shed a powerful light on the importance of our neighborhoods and their ability to shape not only our families but society at large. If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that local communities can serve as a powerful vehicle for effecting social change now and into the future. In 2021, we’ll proudly be playing a role in that through Open House San Diego (OH! San Diego).

This unprecedented time brings an opportunity for OH! San Diego to expand beyond its traditional borders and encourage San Diegans to explore a new slate of communities — National City, Chula Vista, Southeast San Diego, City Heights, Barrio Logan, San Marcos and La Mesa. Empowered by increased awareness and sensitivity, OH! San Diego 2021 will offer a series of self-guided tours, socially-distanced outdoor experiences, narrated virtual tours, and panel discussions that embrace themes of diversity and resilience in the face of change.  Stay tuned for more information as the program unfolds.
