Design with the Other 90%: CITIES


The groundbreaking 2007 Design for the Other 90% exhibition has been developed into an ongoing series that will continue to focus on design solutions that address the 90 percent of the world's population not traditionally serviced by the professional design community. Design with the Other 90%: CITIES, the second exhibition in the series, examines the complex issues arising from the unprecedented rate of urban growth projected to take place over the next twenty years, primarily in the informal settlements of the global south.
