Let's celebrate a #decadeofdesign together! The Center for Architecture invites you to explore design in traditional and unexpected ways through over 120 exhibits, workshops, demonstrations, tours, lectures, and events held in a variety of venues across the city from October 9-17th. Experience how design impacts your everyday life through wide-ranging topics; including architecture, urban planning, interior, landscape, graphic, multi-media, product, and furniture design. You'll get an insider’s view of the active and thriving creative industry of Philadelphia at work. All DesignPhiladelphia events are open to the public and a majority are free of charge.
New Website Features Include Personalized Schedule
Thanks to the team at Jarvus Innovations, our new website includes a personalized schedule option for festival-goers. With over 120 events on tap, the DesignPhiladelphia Festival has something for every age and interest. Events can be browsed by date or filtered by topic or neighborhood. For the first time, users who register with the website will be able to bookmark events that spark their fancy and add them to a personalized schedule. The customized schedule can then be added to your iCal or Google calendar; and for those who like things old-school - printed out.
