Fisher, Swackhamer to present at "Solutions for the Other 90%"

Dean Tom Fisher and Marc Swackhamer (Architecture) will present at "Solutions for the Other 90%," a lecture event featuring "short, rapid-fire, media-rich presentations" at the Walker Art Center on Thursday, July 31, 7 p.m. The event focuses on humanitarian design -- the belief that good design shouldn't just be for the richest 10 percent. Leading Twin Cities designers will present ideas for "sustainable solutions to the water, energy, education, health care, and transportation shortages affecting the 90 percent of the world's population that has little or no access to these products and services."

The event is free to the public; tickets will be available at the Bazinet Garden Lobby desk starting at 6 p.m.
