CCA's Architecture Program is pleased to re-present 10 x 10 Cities: Green Facts, Challenges, Future on the college's San Francisco campus.

The show was previously presented at San Francisco's 3A Gallery in April 2009, to coincide with the AIA national convention in San Francisco. It is a product of a partnership among CCA Architecture, the American Institute of Architects San Francisco Chapter (AIA San Francisco), HOK, and Matarozzi/Pelsinger Builders. It uses metrics and analyses to measure sustainable city-planning practices and environments of 10 cities across North America: Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Miami, New Orleans, New York, San Diego, San Francisco, Toronto, and Washington DC.

The intention of 10 x 10 Cities is to expand and advance conversations about sustainability through a process that actively encourages architects, designers, and citizens to take the positive and immediate steps necessary to mitigate the impact of our everyday behaviors and to engage critically in ameliorating urban contributions to climate change.
