The Index design fair kicks off in Dubai this week-end. Coming up: the Singapore Design festival, Interior Lifestyle in Tokyo, and the opening of the world's tallest building.
Hosted at the Dubai World Trade Center, the fair is the region's leading interiors exhibition and trade show, showcasing the latest design trends and products.
Singapore Design Festival
Themed "Design 2050: Possibilities for Tomorrow," the event - running November 20-30 - will for the first time open to the public via citywide Design Trails. The third Singapore Design festival will also be a special one because this year, it is hosting the ICSID World Design Congress.
Burj Dubai opens
The world's tallest building, the 800-meter-high Burj Dubai tower, will open its doors next to the Dubai Mall.
This trade-only fair is one of the main trend indicators for the Japanese high-end design industry, attracting more than 600 exhibitors from 30 countries.
American Institute of Architects Gold Medal winner announced
The institute's highest honor - and one of the country's most prestigious architecture awards together with the Pritzker Prize - will be handed out on December 4. Previous winners include Renzo Piano, Norman Foster, and Frank Gehry.Reuse content
