The Cooper Hewitt in NYC is wrapping up the fourth in a series of design exhibitions which seeks and and presents the most innovative designs at the center of contemporary culture.  The projects on display in this Triennial program explore the work of designers addressing human and environmental problems across many disciplines;  from architecture and products, to fashion, graphics, new media and landscapes.
