Design Week 2022 written in subway circles

Design Week 2022 is a series of events centered around designing human-centered cities.

Increasing populations and densification are two of the most complex issues within cities today. We believe that engineers, architects, urban planners, and designers alike must come together to create holistic, real-life solutions across all scales and design with the future in mind.

Throughout Design Week 2022, we will work to answer the following question: how might we reimagine spaces within cities to be more equitable and inclusive?

We will be hosting events daily from February 14-18, including an AR Workshop with artist and architect Miriam Hillawi, a guest lecture with Google Maps’ staff UX design lead, Rachel Inman, and an interactive laser-cut participatory art installation! The use of technology is constantly shaping the way humans interact with the world around them and this week will provide a unique and exciting perspective on designing cities with people in mind.
