Design Futures Council

About Design Futures Council

The Design Futures Council (DFC) is a gathering of development, architecture, design, engineering, construction, product, and technology leaders who explore global trends, challenges, and opportunities to advance innovation and shape the future of architecture, engineering, construction and design. Each year the DFC convenes summits on issues of strategic importance to leaders: technology and applied innovation, collaboration, education and talent, sustainability, and the business of design.  The DFC is part of the parent company, DesignIntelligence, which is dedicated to the business success of organizations in the built environment industry.

The Design Futures Council is committed to supporting the built environment community by providing information and understanding of trends and future issues. The DFC creates context in which leaders from member firms can work with one another—as well as leading thinkers from outside industries—to tackle complex challenges and opportunities.
