2020 Symposium

“What Is The Future of The Middle City?” The 2020 Exhibit Columbus Symposium New Middles poses this important question from Columbus, Indiana—in the middle of the U.S. heartland and rooted in the Mississippi River watershed. Building on Columbus’s role as a historic host and speculative think tank on design, the symposium asks the city and sister mid-sized cities to consider the role of design and architecture as civic catalysts, especially when faced with the most pressing issues of our time: from community health to climate change impact, from equity and social justice to emergent technology.
