September 19, 2016 | DesignPhiladelphia, 2016 Festival

DesignPhiladelphia, the signature event of the Center for Architecture & Design and the oldest design event of its kind in the country, will return for its 12th year with approximately 100 events showcasing the work of more than 400 local and international practicing architects, designers and creative professionals from October 6-16. 

We invite you to explore design in both traditional and unconventional ways through DesignPhiladelphia events. This year's events highlight a wide range of design disciplines, including architecture and urban planning, as well as product, interior, furniture, multimedia, graphic and fashion design through programming ranging from exhibitions, tours, talks and workshops to open studios, demonstrations and more. Most events are free, and all are open to the public.
