Visit The Exhibition
Sept. 14-Jan. 7, 2013
Kemper Art Museum at Washington University, St. Louis, Mo.
The Kemper Art Museum’s display assimilates elements from Cooper-Hewitt’s “CITIES” exhibition, which debuted last year at the United Nations, and the groundbreaking 2007 “Design for the Other 90%.” Organized by Cynthia E. Smith, Cooper-Hewitt’s curator of socially responsible design, the exhibition demonstrates how design can address the world’s most critical issues and ranges from individual objects—portable vendor stands, large capacity bicycle carriers, solar lanterns, water filters—to broader strategic and systems-level solutions for farming and irrigation, urbanization and inclusive communities, teaching and education, shelter and housing, clean water and sanitation and waste recycling.
On view through Jan. 5, 2013
