GOOD DESIGN FOR A BAD WORLD ROUTE - BY MARCUS FAIRS (DEZEEN)
This route takes in exhibitions that have caught my eye and particularly those that align with the theme of the talks programme I'm running at DDW, and the related series of articles we'll be publishing on Dezeen. Titled Good Design for a Bad World, this explores how designers are addressing the major problems the world faces.
