Cooper-Hewitt Showcases Design Projects That Could Change the World
Over the past few years, designers have dreamed up hundreds of smart, innovative design projects -- many of which were covered here on TreeHugger -- with the power to spread revolutionary positive change around the world . As part of its design triennial exhibition series, the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum asks "Why Design Now?," and answers with work from designers "addressing human and environmental problems across many fields of the design practice, from architecture and products to fashion, graphics, new media, and landscapes." This important show of design comes with a social purpose -- but is also a presentation of some very cool stuff. Here's a sneak peak of the exhibition, which opens tomorrow, May 14, and is on view until January 9, 2011.
