The Home for Placemaking & Design

The design of our cities & the built environment we share, profoundly affects us all. Design West brings together the world’s best thinkers & practitioners, to find innovative solutions to the challenges of our time. Join our thriving network of experts from across the South West & beyond. With co-design at the heart of what we do, together we can help shape great places for everyone.

The Assembly and The Architect were fantastic spaces for our Brick Works event. Design West supported us every step of the way to ensure it was a success and we will not hesitate in holding future Bristol events here.
