Design in Depth 2018

DIDLogo
All of our Design in Depth 2018 events have passed. Please stay tuned for our 2019 series!

Design in Depth is an annual series of engaging panel discussions that delve deeper into architecture and design. DID usually takes place on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:00 – 7:30 pm at the Center for Architecture and Design. There will be a reception before each lecture starting at 5:30.

Whether you are a newcomer or a lifelong Seattleite, this year’s Design in Depth lecture series is focused on solutions for welcoming everyone to our city and providing the tools to navigate once you’ve arrived. Hear from place-makers, architects and other design professionals that have been involved in planning for Seattle’s Growth.

Thank you to our series sponsor:
