april 17 - 19 | shift your mind

The 9th Biennial Oregon Design Conference: SHIFT19 features design leaders and industry disruptors from a variety of perspectives and experiences. As designers and place-makers, problem solvers and big picture thinkers, we have an opportunity to lead conversations that drive positive change through design. Join us in the SHIFT!


why shift?

The Oregon Design Conference began in 2002 at the Oregon Coast, and focuses broadly on design and the issues shaping our built environment. The conference strives to explore ideas, re-imagine opportunities for design impact, and energize architects and designers from around the Northwest.

SHIFT19 will facilitate a range of cross-generational and cross-professional interactions between attendees designed to shift your thinking and invigorate your creative process, offering up to 13 continuing education credits.

The architectural community is presented with an opportunity to consider their role in creating a dynamic and increasingly collaborative environment of practice. At SHIFT19 you will connect with leaders across multiple disciplines, professions, and passions through keynotes, breakout sessions, and social hours. Engage industry partners on current technologies, systems, and methods, experience inspired presentations and panel discourse from our featured speakers and re-connect and re-energize as a creative community. Will you SHIFT?
