Visit the Architecture and Design Exchange.

Here at the AD EX, the heart of our mission is to lead the conversation about how architecture matters to you. With the health and safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff as our top priority, the AD EX remains closed. While online experiences cannot replace the meaningful connections we make through our in-person programs, we are pleased to offer new ways to stay connected from home with K-12 activities to creative inspiration to virtual talks with the next generation. Please check back here for updates on reopening.
