Edmonton Design Week, founded to celebrate design in the City of Edmonton, will be making a comeback next week.

Hosted by Media Architecture Design Edmonton (MADE), the event has become a showcase for all things pertaining to design in Edmonton. The event is run by volunteers and invites visitors to explore the city’s diverse design world through interactive exhibitions and talks led by industry leaders.

“Our goal is to allow you to become part of the design process and shape your own future with design through ideation and creation,” reads Edmonton Design Week’s website.

The theme for Edmonton Design Week 2023 is “Meld,” which aims to bring together all creative disciplines in Edmonton.

A kick-off party will take place on October 10 and various events and exhibitions will follow throughout the week. These include a tour of John and Patricia Patkau’s Galleria housing project, a tour of the Rossdale Power plant with architects Marc Boutin and Richard Cotter, a tour and documentary film screening on Arthur Erickson’s Dyde House, a cross-generational discussion between Alberta architects, and an online conversation with this year’s Urban Design Awards jurors.

Edmonton Design Week will run until October 15, 2023.
