Design Pavilion 2019

Design Pavilion went Covid-19 dark in May 2020… but the Design Talks Now series kept the conversation virtually alive with design industry thought leaders viewed around the world and archived here.

In the tradition of Design Talks™, the virtual NOW series continues to address topics pointing to the future, resiliency, sustainability, regeneration and humanity as touched by design, and embracing things that matter most.

Design Talks NOW is a collective of individual perspectives documented at this historic moment, featuring architecture, design, art and civic vision by creative leaders, forward thinkers and innovative dreamers.
