Exhibitions: Putting Design Innovation on Display

Artists, engineers, and architects share a practice defined by ingenuity, inquiry, and experimentation. By crossing disciplinary boundaries, we can realize works of art and architecture that challenge convention. Presented in collaboration with venues around the world, an evolving series of installations and exhibits pulls back the curtain on the design process—and reveals the often unexpected results of collaboration.

Chicago Architecture Biennial

On view as part of the citywide festival, Stereoform Slab demonstrates the potential for robotic fabrication technology to reduce the carbon impact of concrete construction.

London Design Festival

For London's citywide celebration of architecture and design, the Design Museum hosted "Reflections: The Anatomy of Form," an installation of structural models created by SOM.
