Passionate partisans of New York City's public realm came together at the 2009 Design Trust Annual Benefit for an evening of conversation, cocktails, community, and beautiful handmade objects. This year we featured one-of-a-kind shelters created exclusively for the Design Trust by prominent architects, designers and artists on the theme of "Nest: Creative Construction for any Living Creature."
The Design Trust Annual Benefit was a smashing success! Thanks to all who supported and attended this event, we couldn't continue to bring state-of-the-art design expertise to the civic sector in New York City without you.
