Design in the Hills is shifting to a one-day event this year. It will be held in Rapid City on Thursday, July 20.
Tours include the Security First Bank, Hermosa School and Dinosaur Park reconstruction. The sponsor expo will be combined with happy hour at the new Ugly Graffiti storefront in downtown Rapid City. We look forward to seeing you this summer to tour a few Black Hills design projects, have plenty of engaging conversations and, of course, enjoy some food and libations.

Each year, AIA South Dakota focus on projects and places of interest in the Black Hills communities, rotating the event between the various cities in the region.
This conference is unique in the design world; while there are sponsors and continuing education credits, very little of it is provided in a traditional classroom setting. The conference is interactive and mobile. 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.
