About Design Sundays 2013
Design Sundays @MOV is a series of talks and workshops at the Museum of Vancouver that invites faculty from postsecondary institutions across Vancouver to speak to the wider issues, inspirations, and challenges that configure their research, practice, and teaching.
Our series for November 2013 is presented in collaboration with the Chip + Shannon School of Design at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and invites the public to learn, share, and discuss the aspects of urban design and living from the perspective of interior/space design, ergonomics, and the underlying utopian ideals of West Coast design that underpins much o f Vancouver's design culture.
