Rescheduled Design Forum Graphic

The Design Forum: In Praise of Shadows has been rescheduled for Thursday, Nov. 5 at the Institute for Contemporary Art at VCU. We are excited to bring you this program in conjunction with Architecture Exchange East: Foresight 2020.

The packed, one-day program will feature a keynote address by Steven Holl and presentations by Herve Descottes, Kirsten Murray and David Lewis.

Through a series of conversations, the Design Forum showcases the work of talented individuals whose shared craft extends beyond the calculated and strictly quantitative into more holistic practice — whose leading-edge preoccupation with light and shadow extends the diversity of approaches to how designers seek beauty through form, space, and materiality.

Current Design Forum ticket holders can choose to attend in person or via live stream. They’ll also have the option to upgrade their tickets to add ArchEx programming. For anyone who didn’t have a chance to purchase tickets to the Design Forum before we closed registration in March, tickets will be available once we open registration for ArchEx in September.

A tremendous thanks to our sponsors. Without their support, this event wouldn’t be possible.
