Design in the Spotlight

Design takes center stage later this week in the U.S. capital, as the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum hosts a series of free public programs to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the National Design Awards. These events are all slated for 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. this Friday, July 24, and pair administration officials with recipients of the 2009 National Design Awards. Programs include:

Design X Experience: The Future of Interaction Design, with U.S. chief technology officer Aneesh Chopra and Perceptive Pixel’s Jeff Han and the Walker Art Center’s Andrew Blauvelt.

Design X Tomorrow: The Future of Technology and Sustainability, with John Holdren of the administration’s Office of Science and Technology Policy and Amory Lovins and Bill Moggridge.

Design X Information: Interpreting the Present and the Past, with White House acting communications director Anita Dunn and Boym Partners and The New York Times Graphics Department.

that day, First Lady Michelle Obama will host a White House ceremony and luncheon for the winners
and finalists of the 2009 awards.
