Design with the other 90%: CITIES

Event Date: 
August 17, 2012 (All day) - January 5, 2013 (All day)

Design with the Other 90%: CITIES, an exhibit of 60 urban solutions for people living in temporary settlements, commonly known as slums. Curated by Cynthia E. Smith of the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and on view at Mercy Corps Action Center and the Museum of Contemporary Crafts. The Presenting Sponsor in Portland is The Lemelson Foundation.

Design with the Other 90%: CITIES features sixty projects, proposals, and solutions that address the complex issues arising from the unprecedented rise of informal settlements in emerging and developing economies. Divided into six themes—Exchange, Reveal, Adapt, Include, Prosper and Access — to help orient the visitor, the exhibition shines the spotlight on communities, designers, architects, and private, civic, and public organizations that are working together to formulate innovative approaches to urban planning, affordable housing, entrepreneurship, nonformal education, public health, and more.

here is no charge at the Mercy Corps Action Center. The Museum of Contemporary Craft charges a $4.00 entrance fee.
