Orchids, Onions & Opportunities (OOO) was a follow-up event to the San Diego Architectural Foundation’s Orchids & Onions program, conceived of and led by FCS and carried out by a brilliant and dedicated volunteer team. OOO fused an extensive original exhibition with interactive elements, a 2-day tour of Orchid-awarded projects, a book commemorating Orchid-awarded projects from 2006-2011, and related special events.
The exhibition presented challenges, realities, inspirations, and possibilities, as they relate to the design, development and use of public spaces within the San Diego County. It contained several opportunities for public commentary and interaction throughout with a goal of enhancing public information, and thereby participation, in the critical decision making process that shape the region
