NYC x Design

NYC x Design, one of the world’s broadest celebrations of the design spectrum, returns to the five boroughs of New York City from 11-23 May. Disciplines featured this year include architecture film, TV, industrial design, theatre, digital design and technology.

With over 400 exhibitions, installations, trade shows, panels, product launches, open studios, tours and more, there is something to challenge every design enthusiast. Of course, it is difficult to choose, but we recommend South Bronx Baton: In Community Land We Trust, a discussion about community use, and management of public spaces in that area. We also like the look of the Women In Design At The Forefront of Change conversation, or you could take one of the Aiany Architectural Boat Tours.
