3rd Annual Architecture on Wheels 2013

 Registration is closed for this event
In partnership with American Institute of Architects (AIA) Southern Arizona Chapter, and in celebration of Architecture Week 2013: Game Changers, Living Streets Alliance is excited to host another round of walking and biking tours.

Living Streets Alliance and AIA Southern Arizona Chapter present the 3rd Annual Architecture on Wheels Hike and Bike tours.

Each tour is designed to introduce participants to a host of architectural styles and designs created during watershed moments in Tucson's growth and development. Recognizing that the Tucson Modern Streetcar is coming to the University of Arizona, Fourth Avenue and Downtown Tucson, this year's tours will focus on other "Game Changers" in Tucson's development, past and present. The railroad, automobile and even the bicycle have all made their mark on Tucson's streets, neighborhoods, business districts and buildings. These tours will spark conversations about the past and get you thinking about the future.


There are three tours to choose from:

  1. Walking Tour of University of Arizona buildings, led by R. Brooks Jeffery, Director, Drachman Institute
  2. Bicycle Tour of University Boulevard., Fourth Avenue, and surrounding neighborhoods, led by Jennifer Levstik, Planner, City of Tucson Historic Preservation Office
  3. --THIS TOUR IS SOLD OUT-- Bicycle Tour of Sam Hughes Neighborhood, 3rd Street Bikeway and 6th Street, led by Demion Clinco, Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation and Arizona Senator Steve Farley.

The cost of this unique opportunity is $15 per person or free for members of LSA or AIA. Not a member of LSA?

Space is limited. Advanced registration is required. Each participant will receive a detailed map with self-guided tour information, a great souvenir to share with visiting out-of-town guests. Maps from previous years' tours will also be available for purchase the day of the event for $5 each.
