Of the world's total population of 6.5 billion, 90%, have little or no access to most of the products and services many of us take for granted; in fact, nearly half do not have regular access to food, clean water, or shelter. 'Design for the Other 90%' explores more than thirty projects which reflect the growing movement among designers, engineers, students and professors, architects, and social entrepreneurs to design low-cost solutions for this other 90%. Published in conjunction with a major exhibition on view at the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, 'Design for the Other 90%' highlights a wide variety of design innovations that address the basic challenges of survival and progress faced by the world's poor and marginalized.
