Austin Design Week Announces Full Schedule


Austin Design Week has released the full schedule of events for its 2019 iteration. Titled “Make Space,” this year’s fest runs Nov. 4-8.

Organizers curated events around questions including: How can barriers be removed and conditions set for everyone to work, live and thrive? And what does it mean to build with intention for new ideas, for old ideas, for those who are frequently ignored and brushed aside?

Among more than 100 events are:

    • A workshop co-hosted by Shoal Creek Conservancy “Reviving Lost Histories & Ecologies: Collaborative Design of an Urban Greenspace on Shoal Creek,” in order to generate design and programming ideas for Wood Street Historic Settlement, currently a vacant parcel of land, once the site of a post Civil-War freedmen community which existed along the west bank of Shoal Creek.
    • Sightlines editor Jeanne Claire van Ryzin is a participant in “The Value of Making Space for Criticism in Design,” a panel discussion hosted by Texas Architect editor Aaron Seward.
    • There’s studio tour of “The Art of Shoes,” a design studio space as well as a small shoemaking factory.
    • AiA’s Latinos in Architecture have organized a discussion on creating inclusive space in Austin: “Designing with Different Scales: Understanding the Dynamics & Importance of Community Spaces”

Most ADW events are free, with reservations encouraged. Check out the full line-up at
