Let’s build a design exhibit space in SD.

Elena Pacenti, Director, Domus Academy School of Design at NSAD

Coming from Milan, Pacenti has a unique perspective on San Diego. “I see an opportunity to reinforce the importance of design as a promoter of innovation and as a connector between technology, human beings, business, and society.” She would like to see a design exhibit space that would display items like the next GoPro, the next wearable device for preventive health, the next sustainable prefab house, or the next Car2Go. “San Diego is ripe to become part of the international design scene and conversation, but it has to give visibility to local innovations and be exposed to innovation worldwide.” She envisions design awards, satellite event series, and other programming inspired by Design Week in Milan. “The goal would be to show how design can truly innovate the way we live.”
