The World Design Organization (WDO) announced that San Diego and Tijuana have been selected as the 2024 World Design Capital (WDC). Our region will become the first binational capital, selected as a result of our commitment to human-centered design and legacy of cross-border collaboration to transform our natural and built environments.
WDC is a biennial designation that recognizes cities for their effective use of design to drive economic, social, cultural, and environmental development.
Moscow, Russia was the other shortlisted city for the title of World Design Capital 2024. San Diego-Tijuana showcased “the power of design to unite and connect us, despite geographical differences” and was awarded the designation by the WDC 2024 Selection Committee.
