Pioneering Design® | Michael Ford: The Hip Hop Architect

Michael Ford: The Hip Hop Architect

Explore the intersection of Hip Hop Culture and design

Hip Hop is beyond beats and rhymes.
Architecture is more than bricks and mortar.

What happens when the advanced study of these two worlds collide?

Back in person, the IIDA NY Pioneering Design® Series is a dynamic two-part event, showcasing the power of collaboration in design which seeks to expand perceptions, open discussion and bring innovative ideas to our community.

For our first event, Michael will share his current endeavors in the cross-venture of Hip-Hop, Architecture, Culture and Design.
This juxtaposition brings creative arts together in brand new ways!

Join us for a night with 250 of your industry peers and connect with like-minded attendees as we learn new ways to share, collaborate and pivot in design!
