Coming This Fall:

Inclusive Futures

Aug 31 - Sept. 30, 2019

This year’s exhibition theme is Inclusive Futures, through which we will explore how designing a city to be more inclusive will results in positive outcomes for everyone. The focus areas for 2019 are inclusive neighborhoods, housing, public spaces, economy and city systems, helping us to focus on creating multi-generational design solutions that result in Inclusive Futures for everyone.
