Two Davis buildings — the Davis Food Co-op and the University of California’s ANR building — are featured stops on the Farm to Fork Architecture Tour hosted by the American Institute of Architects, Central Valley Chapter. The tour, which will take place Saturday, Oct. 12, will feature the architects on location from 1:30 to 3 p.m. to talk about their designs.
The tour is part of the institute’s second annual Central Valley Region Architecture Festival, Oct. 10-19.
The Davis Food Co-op, 620 G St., designed by Davis architect Maria Ogrydziak, is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its redesign, transforming a strip mall location into a vibrant evocation of the Central Valley.
The UC ANR building, by MFDB Architects, is a barn-like steel warehouse that formerly housed an indoor skating rink and Explorit Science Center. The building, at Second Street and Peña Drive, has been repurposed to house the university’s statewide Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources programs.
The project will have just been completed by the day of the tour, so this is a chance to grab a sneak peek at the brand-new space before everyone moves in.
