Cynthia Smith will discuss the exhibit, "Design with the Other 90%: CITIES," featuring 60 projects, proposals, and solutions that address the complex issues arising from the unprecedented rise of informal settlements in emerging and developing economies. The exhibit is divided into six themes—Exchange, Reveal, Adapt, Include, Prosper, and Access—to help orient the visitor. It shines a spotlight on communities, designers, architects, and private, civic, and public organizations that are working together to formulate innovative approaches to urban planning, affordable housing, entrepreneurship, nonformal education, public health, and more.
