Massive Change response paper, due next class, Feb. 20th

“The Massive Change Project explores the legacy and potential, the promise and power of design in improving the welfare of humanity.? (from the Massive change web site: http://www.massivechange.com)

For this week’s written assignment I’d like you all to research Bruce Mau and Bruce Mau design. Look up the online exhibition of “Massive Change?: and consider the themes of the exhibition as well as the ones we read in the exhibition at Rapson Hall---manufactured housing, the legal system, and sustainability. Can you take one of these themes (either from the exhibit in Rapson Hall or from the online exhibition) and relate it a contemporary issue in Minnesota or in the Twin Cities. In what way could design be used locally to improve “the welfare of humanity?? What improvements are needed?

Write a response to this including a short description of Bruce Mau (who he is and what the “Massive Change? project is all about), followed by relating an aspect of life in Minnesota: Typed double space approx 350 to 500 words.
