    Design in the Hills 2022 is set for Thursday, July 14 through Friday, July 15 in Rapid City, South Dakota.

    Each year, AIA South Dakota focuses on projects and places of interest in the Black Hills, rotating the event between various cities in the region.

    This conference is unique in the design world. The event features sponsors and continuing education credits, though it's interactive and mobile with very few sessions offered in a traditional classroom setting. Design in the Hills is a unique gathering of architects, landscape architects, interior designers, engineers and artists from across the state, along with members of the community who all connect to celebrate and elevate the standard of design.

    ATTENTION: Design in the Hills is an event in which most activities occur outdoors. Please be aware that the opening tour on Thursday, July 14 has strict dress requirements. The cement plant is an industrial manufacturing site. Long pants and full sleeves are required along with closed-toed, sturdy shoes (no sandals). Feel free to change your clothes following the tour. You can store your extra items in the bus' storage area.
