Founded in 1983, the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara is a public nonprofit charitable organization. With the goal of enhancing our community's awareness and appreciation of architecture and the built environment, the Architectural Foundation offers and supports a diverse array of programs serving both North and South Santa Barbara County.These activities provide educational opportunities for the public and involve participation and support from local design and building professionals. Through its ongoing programs and resources the Foundation seeks to promote quality in design, construction, and preservation and to foster an understanding of excellence in the urban environment. To this end, the interested public, as well as design professionals, developers, contractors, and business groups are invited to become involved in and support the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara.
Physical structures both reflect and affect who we are as individuals and communities. The Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara invites you to experience some of Santa Barbara's finest designs and gain a better appreciation for the inspiration that our built environment offers our everyday lives.
We welcome you to join our organization! You do not need to be an architect or artist to join.

The design of the built environment shapes us and the forms become the symbol of our community. The design can have great influence to inspire us as we see and experience every day in Santa Barbara. This does not happen by accident, but through design excellence. AFSB works to provide educational programs to help nurture our future designers – Scholarships, BEEP, Kids Draw Architecture, and the High School Design Competition. AFSB also provides architectural appreciation and educational programs for adults – Lectures and Films, “Sabado & Domingo” Historic Walking Tours, and Art Gallery Shows at the Acheson House. AFSB is comprised of a delightfully diverse group of design, art, and architecture lovers – all with significant talents and expertise. We welcome you to join us in our mission!
