Dialog #2: Speculation

Wednesday, April 18, 2012
7:00–9:00 p.m.
2 w 13 Street, 10th Floor Loft
Parsons / The New School

Please RSVP at if you can make it.

Are we experiencing a rise in speculative design projects that occur outside client relationships? What is the role of speculation in funding design projects in New York? Isn’t every design project speculative by nature? Why is engagement in speculative projects the only standing taboo within graphic design?

Event is in the 10th floor loft. Refreshments will be served in the lobby immediately following the discussion.
