Edmonton Design Week
To celebrate Edmonton Design Week, we are opening our doors and inviting Edmontonians to think about the design of our city in a hands-on way. Play with the design of our city in our City Blocks installation. Learn about the design process of the Royal Alberta Museum. Or stop by on Friday, September 29, for a behind-the-scenes tour of our studio.
Suite 100, 10237-104 Street
OUR CITY IN YOUR HANDS
Play, learn, build and explore your relationship with the design of our city. City Blocks is a playful, interactive installation bringing to light the overlaying grids that define our city. Cubes fill the lobby, representing blocks of our city. Pull them apart, fit the city back together or rearrange them to build our city in a new way. Thought-provoking questions will give you an idea of the design-thinking that goes into DIALOG projects.
MAKING OF THE MUSEUM
How can a building express Alberta’s history, landscapes and promising potential? Come inside our studio and explore the design process of the Royal Alberta Museum. A museum-style exhibit takes you through the story of the project and how our disciplines came together to design the museum’s new downtown home. Discover behind-the-scenes stories, early sketches and models, and hear what the once-in-a-lifetime project meant to the multi-disciplinary team members who devoted more than 10 years to working on it.
If you can’t wait for the museum to open (like our team!), take a look at the design and see what you have to look forward to when it opens.
DIALOG OPEN HOUSE
Ever wonder how projects come to life like the Royal Alberta Museum, NorQuest College Singhmar Centre for Learning, Walterdale Bridge, or the funicular?
Step inside one of Edmonton’s most innovative multi-disciplinary design firms and get a behind-the-scenes look at our projects, process, and people. DIALOG designers will walk you through the Design Week installations and host guided tours through our studio in action.
