Opinions sought for Orchids & Onions awards


The San Diego Architectural Foundation (SDAF) is on its annual quest to find out what residents think makes San Diego’s built environment blossom (or stink) and is again soliciting public nominations through Aug. 1 for projects to be considered for 2013’s Orchids & Onions Awards.
