The 10th annual DesignPhiladelphia Festival, a signature event of the Philadelphia Center for Architecture, will be held October 9th to 17th, 2014. The Festival will kickoff on the evening of October 8 with PopUp Place – an experiential benefit and cocktail party not to be missed. Last year, over 300 guests explored North American Street in Kensington – a hot-bed for interior, lighting, and furniture design – and bid on one-of-a-kind objects created by nationally-renowned designers. This year, guests will explore how good design intersects cutting-edge technology in another up-and-coming Philadelphia “design -destination” neighborhood. Stay tuned for details.
