Dwell on Design recently announced new programming. The annual fair will host 300 exhibitors in 100,000 sq ft of the Los Angeles Convention Center, June 23-25. The event also offers three days of onstage programming from the top leaders in design, as well as, continuing education opportunities for every design discipline.
The first new featured speaker series, architect Sir David Adjaye, of Adjaye Associates, built the firm’s reputation with global commissions, including the Nobel Peace Centre in Oslo, Norway, and the Moscow School of Management in Russia. Most recently, Adjaye gained recognition for his design of the Smithsonian Institute National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opened in fall 2016 at the National Mall in Washington, DC. Adjaye has held academic posts at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and was awarded the prestigious Panerai London Design Medal in 2016. Adjaye will present on Friday, June 23rd, with Christopher Hawthorne, architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times.
All sessions and featured panels will take place on one main stage with each discussion covering one of the five major content pillars throughout the fair: Technology and Smart Homes; Health, Wellness and Aging; Urban Space and Densification; Resiliency; and Business of Design. Returning pavilions include the popular prefab homes by Method Home and Cocoon9, where attendees can tour and experience what has become a leading trend in home building and design. For the second year in a row, Prime Edition returns to the show floor. Set amid a gallery-like setting, this “show-within-a-show” offers a unique platform for designer makers, industrial designers, and artists to showcase their work. The AIA Restaurant Design Awards will also return in 2017.
