The seventh annual Detroit Design Festival (DDF) is a 5-day celebration of design and creativity. In celebration of Detroit's designation as the first and only City of Design in the United States, DDF programming and events will explore the various ways design is shaping our future. From the workplace to the built environment, thoughtful design can impact and even change the way we experience the world around us.
Please join us as we once again pair up with the Detroit Design Festival to showcase the talent of the architectural community at Eastern Market’s Shed 3.
The Celebration of Architecture has grown to be one of the largest architecture industry events in the state, with almost 1000 industry professionals in attendance last year. It is not only a way of honoring the incredible work architects do, but it is truly unique in the reach it has throughout the design community as a whole.
It is a spectacle that you will not want to miss
