A groundbreaking ceremony will take place Monday for the new home of the Center for Design Innovation in the Piedmont Triad Research Park.
The CDI supports creative design as an economic development tool in the region, with a particular focus on motion-capture and rapid prototyping technologies.
The ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. in the research park's Southern District, where the University of North Carolina system acquired four acres for the building. About $13 million has been set aside in past state budgets to pay for the facility.
Also on Monday, the CDI will host an open house in its temporary facility in Winston Tower from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., and an "Idea Exchange" on the design of the new building from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Learn more.
