The Museum of Art & Design is pleased to announce the four winners and 13 competition finalists of the 2011 Victor J. Papanek Social Design Awards. The competition is inspired by Papanek's design philosophy:Design, if it is to be ecologically responsible and socially responsive, must be revolutionary and radical in the truest sense. It must dedicate itself to...maximum diversity with minimum inventory...or doing the most with the least.
The projects that follow will be featured in forthcoming Exhibitions at the University of Applied Arts Vienna (November 2011) and the Museum of Arts and Design and/or the Austrian Cultural Forum New York (March 2012).
