DesignPhiladelphia 2015: Shift Everything
Thursday, October 8 - Friday, October 16

It's that time of the year! Explore what Philadelphia's greatest designers have dreamed up since last year, all while following this year's theme of "SHIFT." Planners for the event were inspired by the rapid changes in the skyline and urban landscape seen all around Philadelphia. These changes have had the power to "SHIFT" perceptions about the city. In over 130 events, DesignPhiladelphia will explore the design process, education and working in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative way.
