Tell the World Your Design Favorites


We all have our design favorites, here's your chance to make your case to the world. Though October 16, 6pm Eastern Standard Time, you can cast your ballot online, as part of the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum’s first People’s Design Award. In conjunction with the New York museum’s National Design Week, the program is geared towards the general public, allowing the average joe to browse designs or upload images to nominate his or her own. Several of the picks so far are TreeHugger favorites—such as the Katrina Cottage, the Xtracycle, and the Marmol Radziner prefab house (shown here, left to right). But the assorted entries also range from the zipper, to Wonder Woman, to the peace sign. ::Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum
