Design with the Other 90 Percent

Worldwide, billions of people have little access to things that many of us take for granted: shelter, food, clean water, transportation, and health care. But what they lack in resources, many make up for with determination and resourcefulness. This series, inspired by the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum exhibition, takes a closer look at the ingenious ways that people are teaming up to find solutions to daunting urban problems. From Africa to South America to Asia - visionaries around the world show how good design can solve problems and create a better future - for 100% of us.
