GOOD Design Daily: Tell the National Building Museum About Your Home

by Alissa Walker

November 7, 2010

The hope from the National Building Museum is that these increasingly macro, long-term investigations can help to give a more complete picture of the issues that cities are facing from a design perspective. But the issue becomes finding a way to share this information in a relevant way. To do so, they've partnered with IBM and the Rockefeller Foundation, with design by Brooklyn-based mgmt., and launched a series of ads and editorial pieces in Time as well as a set of infographics that explain different aspects of the changing urban environment. This effort is perhaps the first curatorial attempt to humanize data about cities: The initiative will culminate in a series of events, as well as a book that can not only share this information, but do it in a way that's easy to explain to the general public.
