Open To Ideas

In conjunction with Design Pavilion, Design Talks™ is a fascinating and culturally relevant conversation and robust story series featuring architecture, design and art visionaries and creative leaders.

May - July Design Talks NOW

Design Talks NOW uncovers why design matters NOW through the exploration of current tones and shared human experience as we face a drastically changed world.
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.

In 2021, Design Talks Now will produce two series of conversations, roundtables and panel discussions for the Spring and the Fall in anticipation of the unveiling of Open to the Sky to the public.
