Architecture of the Central Coast release party to be held at Nautical Bean May 2 from 6-8pm 

[San Luis Obispo, CA, April 16, 2018] The American Institute of Architects California Central Coast (AIACCC) chapter and local design firm Andrew Goodwin Designs (AGD) have released a new coffee table book aimed at highlighting and celebrating award winning architecture projects from the Central Coast. Architecture of the Central Coast is a 230-page coffee table book with glassy photos, text and floor plans of over 20 projects that have won awards from the AIACCC over the past two years. The book will have a release party on May 2 from 6-8pm at the new Nautical Bean location at 2010 Parker Street in San Luis Obipso. 

Come out to the release party and enjoy appetizers and drinks while talking with architects that have been featured in the publication! 

“Many of our local firms deserve to be published but seldom have the ability to market and get their projects into design magazines and publications”, AIACCC Director Andrew Goodwin said about the reason why a publication like this was important. The AIACCC has bi-annual design awards and a monthly design award program that help to put the spotlight on projects that have been designed and constructed to the highest caliber. “Our architects and our architecture on the Central Coast deserve praise and this publication is our way of thanking our design and construction industry for pushing the envelope”, Goodwin further pointed out. 

Architecture of the Central Coast was self-published by AGD and co-sponsored by many local organizations including Above Grade Engineering. Fifty percent of all the profits from the sales goes to the art and architecture scholarship for local K-12 and university programs. The book is available for sale in downtown San Luis Obispo at Len Collective (722 Marsh Street), and on Amazon. The cost is $40 plus tax and shipping. 

The AIA Central Coast Chapter (AIACCC) is a professional architecture organization dedicated to supporting membership by being advocates for the architecture profession, advancing the value or architects to the public by demonstrating leadership in the community, by creating opportunities for engagement and collaboration, fostering innovation, cultivating the future of the profession and embracing a culture of architectural excellence.
