Design Pavilion is a five-day cultural outdoor event, which will be held in two locations in celebration of NYCxDesign. The two locations include Design Pavilion Times Square, which will serve as a public center for the city’s official design week. There will be a new Design Pavilion Market, a food and dining installation, and a performance and informational hub.

The second location is in Sara D. Roosevelt Park, at Chrystie and Forsyth Streets on the Lower East Side, which will showcase innovative and interactive exhibits, focusing on industry, with daily programming and presentations. Additional programming will include NYC Design Talks, which will explore the relationship between design and community, and the affects of design on our everyday life. The talks will take place at The Cooper Union, Parsons School of Design, and Fashion Institute of Technology. Design Pavilion will be on view from May 8 to May 22.
