Designing Respect Exhibition
4th – 23rd October 2016
Venue: Museum of Tomorrow, Rio de Janeiro
Theatrum Mundi, People’s Palace Projects and Museum of Tomorrow are proud to announce the 11 winning projects of the 2016 edition of the global ideas competition Designing Politics. Set this year in Rio de Janeiro and focusing on the issue of RESPECT, the winning projects were chosen by peer vote and tested the potentials of respect towards social and spatial justice in the city of Rio. They are highlighted at the exhibition RESPEITO at the Museum of Tomorrow/Museu do Amanhã:
All 62 submissions can be viewed on an online gallery here. They were all championed by the official jury for their demonstration of key struggles in the 21st century city: racial segregation, class violence, gendered space, unequal mobility, profound neoliberal urban restructuring, displacement, territorial stigmatisation, and the question of who counts as history.

The contributions respond to the question: What are the limits of design in addressing the political and/or when has design not been enough? The full publication can be downloaded here.
