It’s almost time for Denver Design Week, a seven-day series of lectures, workshops, and tours that celebrate the region’s best design—from architecture and interiors to art and technology.

From October 12–19, sites around the city will host more than 30 panel discussions and keynote presentations about modern design and architecture in Denver, led by some of the region’s top design experts. There’s something for every sort of design geek, from a discussion on Denver’s urban landscape led by Tryba Architects’ principal John McIntyre, to an exploration of how tiny homes can help solve Denver’s affordable housing crisis.
