The Standard Hotel (you may have heard of it) will serve as the welcome center to this year's Meatpacking District Design Week. From May 14th - May 17th the Meatpacking District Initiative will host various events and exhibits throughout the neighborhood, including a viewing of the architectural model for the planned Whitney Museum of American Art on Gansevoort Street--future home of the High Line Maintenance + Operations headquarters.
For those interested in clean, green designs (think High Line!), the Green and Clean Design Panel Discussion will be held on May 18th from 10:00AM-12:00PM where a panel of leading international green thinkers will discuss two topics: "Thinking Green - the Future of Our Cities" and "Creating Green - How Design Can Help."
