Voices of Design was created as a way to celebrate the impact of design on our community. We want to recognize projects, programs, and initiatives amplifying the impact of design in Columbus.

About Voices Of Design

Voices of Design is an initiative created by The Center for Architecture & Design. The mission of CFAD is to make architecture and design accessible to all. We imagine a future Columbus that values architecture and design, genuinely representing the breadth and diversity of our community. Voices of Design is a free, annual publication distributed within the community and digitally via 614NOW, featuring a jury-selected collection of projects, programs, and initiatives that amplify the impact of design in Columbus. The jury will consist of community leaders, city officials, and other creative executive leaders throughout Columbus.

The Categories Of Design Impact Include:


Health &





Justice / Equity /
Diversity / Inclusivity
