Meet the Baldwin Design Council—25 of the industry’s best architects and designers collaborating with each other and Baldwin to shape the future of design. Last October, we hosted the council members at a two-day Baldwin Design Summit in New York City.
The Design Summit consisted of an intense series of strategy sessions in which council members worked with the Baldwin team to discuss industry trends, Baldwin products and the overall Baldwin brand. Members also enjoyed time exploring Materials ConneXion—the world’s largest materials library—and a media roundtable to gain further insights on promoting their work through editorial coverage and social media. An AIA-led architectural tour of New York City and a private screening of the movie Strange & Familiar: Architecture on Fogo Island capped off the two-day event. Members received CEU credits for both the boat tour and the film screening, which was part of the Architecture Design Film Festival at the Bow Tie Chelsea Cinemas.
Our current Design Council is serving a two-year term from August 2015 through August 2017. We’ll be launching our search for the next Design Council in late 2016/early 2017. If you are interested in applying for the next Baldwin Design Council, please comment below and we will contact you when the application process is live.
