Design Is Dead // Long Live Design: Design Debate + Election Viewing Party

Join us on Election night for a heated debate on how design contributes to or fails to contribute to our city's best interest. Local designers, from various disciplines, will debate how design has shaped our city today, and whether design will really solve our city's planning problems or just create more.

Teams will have a chance to make their arguments and rebute, so you can decide for yourself.

Stick around after the debate for an Election Viewing Party.
