Two Ways to Attend

Two ways to attend, countless benefits.  Whichever you select, be inspired, refreshed, and reminded of why you were interested in architecture in the first place. 

MDC Live

MDC's in-person legacy is as an unparalleled, spectacular and intimate affair. Beyond its extraordinary lectures and speakers, attendees find themselves strolling on the beach; wandering the Julia Morgan-designed grounds; or sitting on the deck of the main lodge in conversation with a Pritzker Prize winner or many of the most catalytic thinkers in architecture-as if they were invited into their own backyard.  

MDC Online

Experience MDC virtually.  See the program’s globally-known speakers, be inspired by MDC’s famed content from a couch in your home, or a chair at your office.

Design. Inspiration. Connection. Experience.
