We will tour these two inspiring studios to see current work on the books, and well as to understand how thesevery diverse top designers work, collaborate, and how design happens.
As we meet these leading designers and tour their exciting and very different studios, we discuss new design directions, creativity, new ideas, and design inspiration.
Viewing their newest work and work in progress, we see that adaptability, tech knowledge, and a broad understanding of aesthetics are essential elements in today’s interiors and architecture.
You will meet designers and their associates. All are committed to sustainability of the built environment, responsible use of materials, and efficient design and implementation. Their team is diverse, valued, and highly motivated.
We will discuss use of tech including 3D printing, VR and new ways designers work. PARTICIPANTS will have the opportunity to ask questions. We can discuss ‘how to apply for a job’ and ‘how to develop a career’.
Followed by a reception at end of day where attendees can meet design firm staff, discuss ideas from the visit, and learn more about advancing in the design world.
