Edwin Schlossberg was a protégé of Buckminster Fuller and worked on Fuller’s groundbreaking 1969 World Game. Schlossberg went on to found ESI Design, a leader in experiential design. He designed the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, one of the first interactive learning environments, along with other innovative museums, parks, retail environments, and public spaces, including, most recently, the Action Center to End World Hunger.
In Glimmer: Schlossberg discusses the roots of the new design activism, and also why we must learn to solve problems by working in groups.
Quote: “There’s a hunger out there for more authentic involvement in social issues—but for that to actually happen, it requires design.”
