At The Branch, it is our mission to elevate awareness of the transformative power of architecture and design.

designVA is an organization for young professionals who share a passion for architecture and design. The goal of designVA is to foster educational, outreach, and networking opportunities for young professionals and advocates throughout our community; while continuing its support of The Branch Museum of Architecture and Design.  Membership is open to individuals ages 21 to 40 of all backgrounds and skills.
