The Design Resource Center is an economic, social, and educational asset to Downtown Baton Rouge. The center serves as a public show room to past, current, and future development of Baton Rouge. It educates residents about the future growth and development of their city, while it also serves as the public liaison between individuals, communities, and design services. The Design Resource Center brings students and projects into a diverse and vibrant downtown environment; enabling an exchange of disciplines and backgrounds between different educational institutions. The creativity and passion of designers in Baton Rouge has re-energized downtown. The goal of this project is to encourage and enable the continued enthusiasm that has returned both commerce and culture to Downtown Baton Rouge. The Design Resource Center will assist new businesses, embrace and encourage creativity, and expedite development research.

If you are interested in utilizing the space, call the Downtown Development District office at 225-389-5520.
