Oakland 2100: A Game About the Future of Oakland

What do we want for the future of downtown Oakland? What should our city look like? And how do we get there?

Hosted by East Bay AIA, the exhibition Oakland 2100: A Game About the Future of Oakland invites the community to come together to learn, discuss, and collectively envision the future of downtown Oakland, together. The exhibition will provide opportunities to engage with future scenarios for our city through a large-scale interactive model, programming, and creative concepts. Bring your insights, curiosity, and imagination and join the conversation.

Oakland 2100 is a game where people work together to imagine the future of downtown Oakland. Players navigate trade-offs, prioritize and place investments and engage other players in the type of negotiations that happen in the building of cities every day. During the game, players leverage the power of art, design, and play to shape a vision of Oakland that is built by and for Oaklanders, while learning about the complexities that exist in long-range planning, design, development, and financing.

Brought to you by East Bay AIA, the exhibition Oakland 2100: A Game About the Future of Oakland will be open from September 18th-October 4th 2019 and will feature creative programming and events brought to you by the Oakland 2100 team, East Bay AIA, and Urban Field Studio.

Closing Party: Oakland 2100 - Dreaming the Future

Join us for the closing party for the exhibition Oakland 2100: A Game About the Future of Oakland at East Bay AIA. Synced up with First Friday, this closing party will celebrate three weeks of listening, debating, and dreaming of how we can all promote a bold future for our downtown that is attractive, inclusive and uniquely collaborative. We encourage you to come dream with us and help further imagine the immense potential of downtown Oakland and envision for yourself the possibilities of what this might look like. 

The vibe will be festive. We’ll have music, snacks and be slinging drinks to celebrate. Looking for ways to kickstart the building of the Oakland of the future? We’ll be hosting a pop-up City Builders Fair to signal boost a few of the organizations and nonprofits helping to design the city of the future, today. 

This event is part of the exhibition, Oakland 2100: A Game About the Future of Oakland. The exhibit is on view September 18th-October 4th.
