design field trip:

September 26-29, 2019
Vancouver, Canada


A curated design experiencE

LA Design Festival is headed to Vancouver to discover what makes this modern metropolis so unique. We’ll be meeting with some of the architects, designers, and creatives who are driving the design dialogue forward. With urban housing typologies that are not found anywhere else, an unusual abundance of populated public spaces, and an ever increasingly robust design scene, Vancouver has established itself as one of the most livable cities on earth. How has forward-thinking design shaped it?



Join us for a long weekend as we immerse ourselves in West Coast design.
