Design with the 90%

This exhibition celebrates design as a process, a way of thinking, and an approach to solving a problem—and the important role design can play in addressing critical human problems. Through the lens of design and inspiring objects, the exhibition appeals to broad audiences who might not otherwise visit the Discovery Center or engage in topics related to the Gates Foundation mission and work.
