HealthMap at the National Design Triennial: Why Design Now? At the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum through January 2011

“Inaugurated in 2000, the Triennial program seeks out and presents the most innovative designs at the center of contemporary culture. In this fourth exhibition in the series, the National Design Triennial will explore the work of designers addressing human and environmental problems across many fields of the design practice, from architecture and products to fashion, graphics, new media, and landscapes.”

As part of the Why Design Now? National Design Triennial’s Health Category, HealthMap provides visualizations of surveillance data in a user-friendly manner, facilitates early disease detection, and provides a tool for public awareness and involvement.

An audio commentary as well as additional information about the HealthMap exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt is available by visiting the HealthMap Triennial page.
