Tools : Extending Our Reach Hardback
Tools, the catalogue for Cooper Hewitts reopening exhibition, showcases objects from ten of the Smithsonian Institutions museums to explore how diverse cultures, time periods and multifarious activities provide a means of realizing designs critical role in understanding our world, and to examine how tools offer insights into scientific, technological, and cultural changes in societies.
It shows the interconnectedness of scientist, designer, historian, anthropologist, engineer and artist through design-thinking and problemsolving while also revealing distinct perspectives and methodologies.
