The Bay Area's shelter-in-place order has brought countless events usually held as in-person gatherings online. We're aiming to support local businesses in San Francisco and Oakland by highlighting five of these events each day.

Got a suggestion for an online event based in SF or Oakland? Email our events reporter, Teresa Hammerl. 

Here's your San Francisco online event calendar for Monday, September 14. Tune in to a seated meditation, learn about the history of the Fillmore district or have some fun during a comedy night.

In another Architecture + the City festival event, Cathi and Steven House will illustrate how travel has shaped who they are as architects practicing in California, Mexico, the Caribbean and beyond, and how they incorporate what they learn into their architecture.

A few years after their first trip abroad, they created an extensive exhibition that premiered at the Center for Architecture + Design gallery in San Francisco called “Mediterranean Villages: an architectural journey." Later, the duo also documented their experiences in Italy, Greece, Dalmatia and Spain in a book filled with drawings, photographs, paintings, maps and personal reflections.
