How the Other 90% Lives was a project of Design 21: Social Design Network, an ambitious project with ties to UNESCO. The image above is a relief shelter manufactured by Weyerhauser. If you can make it, there’s an exhibit winding down at the Cooper Hewitt museum in New York, and a great website that’s worthy of exploration.
