It started in 2013...
Design Talks Institute is dedicated to advancing education by conducting research regarding architecture and design within the urban environment, and disseminating the results of that research to the public through exhibitions, discussions and open forums. It also seeks to advance education by producing and installing exhibitions, and holding workshops, seminars, and conferences for the public regarding architecture, art, and design.
Serving as a public forum, our discussions, screenings, events and exhibitions foster dialogue that bring together multiple perspectives. Each public event is a combination of presentations that open up discussion followed by a distillation of how it relates at a local level. Topics cover a range of contemporary issues on spatial form including heritage, mobility, neighbourhoods, and the social and cultural significance of the public realm.
It’s an informal setting where people with diverse opinions can come together to find common ground. At d.talks, a question is as important as an answer.
