Exhibition - Process Lab: Citizen Design

An installation in the museum’s Process Lab, Citizen Design invites visitors to engage, empathize, and help envision a better America. Inspired by the Gray Area project, a Philadelphia-based community engagement initiative featured in the exhibition By the People: Designing a Better America (which ran from September 30, 2016 to February 26, 2017), Citizen Design encourages civic dialogue at a local level. Through a series of questions and choices, visitors identify issues that personally matter and use design-thinking tactics to creatively brainstorm possible interventions. Interactive features designed for the installation allow visitors to explore how their concerns align with those of other visitors to the museum.

Citizen Design was developed in partnership with Interface Studio Architects, collaborators and designers of the Gray Area project.
