designinthehills.jpgOur 2018 Design in the Hills event is set for July 19-20 in Custer.

The program will include a tour of Star Academy, which is being reimagined as a sustainable light-industrial campus, a charrette on potential repurposing of an abandoned feldspar plant, a tour of the Custer Regional Hospital Healing Garden and the Custer Community Center.

The event is open to all design professionals, including architects, interior designers, landscape architects, planners, interns and students.

A full schedule for the 2018 event will be posted when it’s finalized.

Last year’s Design in the Hills event, “Adaptations,” focused on the expansion of downtown Rapid City “Past Fifth,” from downtown to the School of Mines campus. It included tours of several adaptive re-use projects, a charrette on “Supported Housing” with a special Duluth Housing Model presentation and a bus tour to the Bridger Steel facility near Blackhawk.

Last year’s sponsors included Gage Brothers, Hebron Brick Supply, Syverson Tile & Stone, Dakota Business Center, Bridger Steel, West Plains Engineering and Canfield Business Interiors.
