Save a Billion Birds! Annual Dinner and Reception

Save a Billion Birds! Annual Dinner and Reception
9 December 2015, Asian Art Museum of San Francisco

The Save a Billion Birds! Annual Dinner and Reception has been organized to encourage investment in architectural heritage across Asia, as a way to protect natural resources through a unique and creative program. Every year, over a billion birds perish after colliding into glass windows. The loss of birds at this scale creates enormous economic, environmental, and cultural challenges for the communities such architecture ought to serve. San Francisco has been proactive in creating bird-friendly guidelines to encourage architecture sensitive to this crisis. This evening takes this sensitivity of the SF Planning Deparment Standards for Bird Friendly Building further, by demonstrating how the glass-free building traditions of Asia can foster even better architecture 
for vibrant and productive communities.
