Join us for the first public event of the 2019 exhibition: the J. Irwin and Xenia S. Miller Prize Design Presentations on Saturday, January 19 at The Commons.

The Miller Prize is awarded to international leaders in their fields who bring unique perspectives in connecting people to place and community. The Design Presentations provide not only the opportunity to witness acclaimed designers present their concepts in a public format, but also give everyone a look at what is to come when the 2019 exhibition opens next fall.

The Design Presentations will also feature the University Design Research Fellows. Representing eight universities, these fellows will translate their innovative research into installations and experiences that explore ways in which architecture and design can improve cities and advance new practices in design and fabrication.


9:30 am / Coffee and light breakfast from Lucabe Coffee Co.
10:00 am – 12:30 pm / University Design Research Fellows
12:30 – 1:30 pm / Lunch at The Commons from Fresh Take Kitchen*
2:00 – 4:30 pm / Miller Prize Presentations

This event is free and open to the public.

* We are excited to offer a $15 ticket option, which includes a catered lunch from Fresh Take Kitchen set up in The Commons––a real bonus to stay inside and keep warm with a delicious lunch during the January weather!
