Solutions for the Other 90%


by Todd Melby, 7/27/08 • If you haven’t spent time with Design for the Other 90%, the Walker Art Center exhibit on finding low-cost designs to help the world’s poor, Thursday, July 31 is the day to get over there. At 7 p.m., the museum and Solutions Twin Cities are sponsoring “an evening of rapid-fire, media-rich presentations by Twin Cities designers working to bring sustainable solutions to the 90 percent of the world’s population that has little or no access to … water and energy.” Yikes! That’s a long sentence. Thursday’s presentations will no doubt be more to the point. There’s more information here.
