Take a tour of some of LA’s most beautifully decorated houses, catch a showcase of exhibitions and listen to some of the world’s foremost creatives speak on the future of design at the 11th annual Dwell on Design event, scheduled June 24-26 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The largest design event in America is curated by the editors at Dwell magazine and will feature over 350 brands, free consultations with architects and design experts, continuing education sessions and over forty presentations and demonstrations from industry pros including keynote speaker, famed architect Sou Fujimoto.
Over 250,000 square feet of displays show off the work of hundreds of exhibitors including the SMUD Tiny House Competition and Luxury Pools Magazine, providing lots of inspiration for 30,000+ expected attendees. The zones include Kitchen & Bath, Home Technology, Furniture & Accessories, Design Materials and International Design. Just outside, Toyota will be giving licensed drivers the opportunity to test out the all-new Prius, and the Modern Family Pavilion has kid-friendly features like folk art playhouses.
One of the coolest elements of this year’s event is Dwell Home Tours, a series of self-guided tours offering an unprecedented look at amazing architecture, each one kicking off with a ‘Meet the Architects’ night. 15 homes across the Los Angeles metro area will open to showcase the vision of their respective architects, from a beach bungalow in Santa Monica to a modern renovation in the Eastside Hills. All tours are self-guided and the homes will be open all weekend from 10AM – 4PM. In addition, there will be 5 full-scale prefab homes on display at the Convention Center.
Don’t miss keynote speaker Sou Fujimoto on Friday, June 24th, who will be signing books after his speech at the Designers and Books Fair. Pushing the boundaries of residential architectural norms, Fujimoto is known for his daring and innovative architectural visions including a surreal stack of house-shaped volumes and this offbeat configuration of glass boxes.
