This exhibition focuses on the growing need to create affordable, sustainable means for survival for the 90% of the world's population who lack the means to purchase even the most basic goods. Affordable design innovations include inexpensive treadle water pumps, a low-cost drip irrigation system, and Nicholas Negroponte's $100 computer, among other works.
