The thirteenth annual Structures for Inclusion conference (SFI-13) will be held March 23-24 at the University of Minnesota’s Minneapolis Campus. The conference is preceded by the Public Interest Design Institute, a training program sponsored by the American Institute of Architects, that will be held at the same location on March 21-22. These are two major events that help compose the inaugural Public Interest Design Week, March 19-24.

SFI explores what roles architects and design professionals can have in aiding some of the most critical social, economic, and environmental challenges of the world today. The conference brings together design professionals and students, community activists, and non-profit organizations for an intense two days of presentations and discussions about products, places, and processes that have been designed or redesigned for the public good. SFI-13 will teach participants how to take action in their own practice, school, and community. The conference is co-hosted by University of Minnesota’s College of Design and Design Corps.
