Brief DescriptionExhibitions, talks, workshops, festivals, and more!
DescriptionThe Center provides Philadelphia with educational programs, exhibitions, and a public space to explore architecture, urban planning, and design, allowing visitors the opportunity to understand how these disciplines affect us all in our daily lives. Using our city's distinctive breadth of architecture, pioneering urban design, and manufacturing heritage as the foundation for conversation, we educate the public through talks, exhibitions, publications, hands-on workshops, design competitions, festivals, and children’s programming.

The Center's signature annual festival, DesignPhiladelphia, is the oldest of its kind in the nation. Each October, DesignPhiladelphia highlights the work of hundreds of local designers, architects, and creative professionals with over 100 events citywide including panel discussions, hands-on workshops, studio tours, book signings, professional development classes, design exhibitions, fashion shows, and imaginative celebrations.

The Center brings together architects, designers, developers, thought leaders, local representatives, and the public under one roof and also provides office space to AIA Philadelphia and the Community Design Collaborative. An independent non-profit, the Center was founded in 2002 by the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Philadelphia). The Center is open to the public five days a week.
