Dwell on Design returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center, June 23-25, 2017, and is excited to announce the first wave of new programming! The highly- anticipated annual fair will welcome 300 new and returning exhibitors, transforming 100,000 square feet of concrete into a design incubator where prefab comes to life and design luminaries debate the issues of today. With three days of onstage programming from the top leaders in design, as well as, continuing education opportunities for every design discipline, Dwell on Design 2017 is shaping up to be another incredible event. The first wave of announcements includes the first confirmed featured speaker, the five content pillars, and a preview of returning brands and pavilions.
The first of many in the new featured speaker series, Dwell on Design welcomes architect Sir David Adjaye. Adjaye’s ingenious use of materials and his sculptural ability have established him as a leading architect with an artist’s sensibility and vision. His firm, Adjaye Associates, built their reputation with prestigious commissions around the world, including the Nobel Peace Centre in Oslo and the Moscow School of Management. 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 to praise and popularity. Adjaye Associates has offices in London, New York, and Accra, Ghana, with ongoing projects across the UK, US, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Adjaye has held academic posts at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and was awarded the prestigious Panerai London Design Medal in 2016. Dwell on Design is honored to present Adjaye onstage Friday, June 23rd, accompanied by Christopher Hawthorne, the esteemed architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times.
