Design for Social Impact
May 25–August 3, 2014
Based on the idea that design is a way of looking at the world with an eye for changing it, the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) presents Design for Social Impact, an original exhibition offering a look at how designers, engineers, students, professors, architects and social entrepreneurs use design to solve the problems of the 21st century.
The A+D Museum will host a fundraiser on December 1 at the Sobieski House in South Pasadena in support of the museum's upcoming Never Built: Los Angeles exhibit. The fundraiser provides a great chance to spend the twilight hours on the grounds of the Sobieski House, designed by 2012 AIA|LA Gold medal winner Koning Eizenberg Architects. According to the A+D Museum website, the Never Built: Los Ageles exhibit “showcases visionary unbuilt work that challenges our City to think bigger.” The fundraiser will feature a visual presentation of Never Built, a silent auction for original prints, sweets from Little Flower Candy Café, and the aforementioned twilight architecture experience. Tickets cost $50 in advance and $60 at the door. Visit the A+D Museum for more information.
