The Portland Museum of Contemporary Craft and Mercy Corps are collaborating to bring the exhibit Design with the other 90%: Cities to Portland beginning August 17, and running through January 5. Of the exhibition's six thematic sections, three will be featured at the Mercy Corps Action Center, and three at the Museum.

The exhibit is the second installment of of a series by the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design museum that began in 2009. It will "explore design solutions to the challenges created by rapid urban growth in informal settlements, otherwise know as slums," says a museum spokesperson. It will include architectural models, photos, video, and interactive kiosks covering projects such as alternative housing design, low-cost clean water, education initiatives and more. The exhibition is divided into six categories: Exchange, Reveal, Adapt, Include, Prosper, and Access.
