Dynamic Minds Series

ABOUT DYNAMIC MINDS SERIES led by Diane Dorrans Saeks

The Dynamic Minds Series is 4 separate events over a series of afternoons. Please register for each event.

Creativity, ideas, inspiration and exploration, balanced with in-depth knowledge, remain essential elements in today’s interiors and architecture. This is evident throughout four special afternoon seminars at the studios of leading California architects, product designers, and interior designers in San Francisco.

During the 4 events in the series, attendees will meet San Francisco’s leading architecture and design practitioners and view work in their studios. Studios include Stanley Saitowitz, The Wiseman Group, BCJ, ODADA, Geoff de Sousa, BAMO, Ken Fulk, Jonathan Browning, and at Modernism Gallery with Aidlin Darling Design. These take place on different afternoons over 4 days and require separate ticketing.

You will experience the full range of aesthetics, from pure modernism to richly informed classical design, traditional, bold, minimal, and eclectic expression. All are based on intellectual and intuitive disciplines. A highlight will be viewing and discussing works in process, as well as newly completed interiors and unpublished new residences.

We will see how studios fully use newest technical advances such as VR and 3D printing (and continue to sketch) in their design concepts and in interactions with their clients.

At the end of the day, participants are invited to a private in-studio reception and celebration, offering the opportunity to meet designers and their staff and to discuss in-depth ideas and views.
