To celebrate the fifth edition of What Design Can Do, a selection of projects demonstrating the power of design was made. Until recently, the possibilities design offers in identifying problems in society and helping to solve them went unrecognised by most. As a platform centred around a two-day conference in Amsterdam, What Design Can Do highlights the power of design as a means to resolution among both professionals and the wider public. Calling upon designers to use their skills to make the world a little better, hundreds of ideas have been generated, and the best are in this book. With contributions by Carlo Ratti, Césare Peeren, Piet Oudolf, Urban-Think Tank, among others.
