Presenting The 2023 Metropolis Future100

Each year, Metropolis sets out to designate the top graduating architecture and interior design students in the United States and Canada. The program, sponsored by Armstrong, Daltile, Formica, Interface, Kawneer, Keilhauer, Sherwin-Williams, and Yabu Pushelberg, invited the most talented students from the class of 2023 to apply. “Supporting the next generation of designers not only affirms our values but is necessary for the success of the industry as a whole,” says Rowan Thompson, brand strategy manager at Yabu Pushelberg. The final 100 are featured below. 

Nominated by their instructors and mentors, these 50 interior design and 50 architecture students were chosen by the Metropolis team. They hail from some of the best schools in North America, from Yale University to the University of California, Los Angeles, and call anywhere from Miramar, Florida, to Bellevue, Washington, home. A diverse group—with many women, as well as those who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, or neurodivergent—they are leaders on their campuses, advocating for equity and inclusion through their work and extracurriculars.
