The ID community shares crazy interests, secret obsessions, quirky observations, and unexpected learnings through fun fast storytelling.

After a 2-year COVID hiatus, NOWHaus is back. Typically an annual social event led by Institute of Design (ID) students, NOWHaus is inspired by ID’s history as The New Bauhaus. At NOWHaus, ID students, faculty, and staff share their crazy interests, secret obsessions, quirky observations, and unexpected learnings through fun, fast presentations (20 images for 20 seconds each), standup, and other storytelling mediums. There will also be time to mingle with the Chicago design community over food and drinks.

About the Institute of Design (ID)

The Institute of Design (ID) at Illinois Tech was founded in Chicago by Bauhaus émigré László Moholy-Nagy in 1937. It has since pioneered human-centered design, systems design, and a methods-based approach to design. Today ID is home to the only US design school devoted completely to graduate students—the first to offer the PhD in design. Uniting science and rigor with creativity and rapid iteration, ID focuses on the systems that shape modern life (including cities, education, finance, food, healthcare, and technology) and building new worlds from them, together.
