MSD at HOME presents MSDx Summer 2020

Join us on December 10 for MSDx Summer, a virtual exhibition showcasing the latest innovations in design thinking by the next generation of design professionals.

The exhibition, held on an interactive multimedia platform, will give attendees a glimpse into the future of design across the built environment, showcasing hundreds of pieces of studio work by our talented students.

The virtual experience will allow the viewer to explore each studio’s carefully curated digital exhibition spaces through interactive digital environments, videos, images, digital models, plans, virtual fly-throughs, renders and artworks.

Opening Night will feature a live DJ set, concurrent chat rooms, speeches and commentary from design academics and industry figures, as well as a number of virtual activities soon to be announced.
