Design for life. 99 projects for the real world

Temporary
-

Design is an activity that has become fully part of our lives. We live in a world that is shaped largely by human effort and in which design is so present that it often becomes invisible until it ceases to work. However, design enables us to constantly, consistently, solve problems that generate great social impact. In this show, we focus on design that is expressly aimed at improving the lives of the users it is intended for, the environment in which it operates and the society to which it belongs.
 
To demonstrate the key role that design can play in providing solutions to everyday problems of different types, improving the welfare of citizens, both in our immediate context and in more distant geographical regions.
