Design Charrettes

Our ongoing Design Charrette program aims to highlight the value of good design, critical thinking and public dialogue for improving our shared built environment. 

Design charrettes are blue-sky visioning exercises that explore contemporary design challenges. They elicit quick, provocative and visionary presentations from the professional design community which are then shared with a panel of experts and the public for review and discussion.  

These events provide an open and independent forum for the design profession, public officials and members of the community to engage in thoughtful, productive conversation about the future of Santa Fe. Our charrettes have been instrumental in improving community outreach and ensuring the profession and the public’s participation in better design and policy outcomes.
