Everything is designed. Design is a creative problem-solving process — and problems come in all shapes and sizes. We believe design can change the world. So give and help us inspire people with the impact of design. We’re redefining what it means to be a museum in the 21st century — we are online, nomadic, and accessible to all. Instead of a single museum location, we pop up all over the city in places people already go.
