The 10th annual, weeklong event is upon us, chockablock with receptions, discussions, exhibits, open studios, and open houses—including Dwell’s tour of a 600-square-foot prefab Monogram Modern Home at Larkspur’s Marin Country Mart. Many events are already sold-out, so comb the schedule for whatever suits your fancy and sign up now. Also, keep an eye out for High Up, a series of billboards throughout the city created by graphic designers and presented by the Municipality of Milan, The Italian Cultural Institute, California College of the Arts, and SF Design Week—on view through June 17.
