The sixth edition of the Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial, Nature, explores the human relationship with the natural world, focusing particularly on environmental crises and the extinction of animal and plant species. The show assembles more than 60 projects by international teams of artists, designers, scientists, engineers, environmentalists and others and is organised into seven sections involving different strategies for collaborating with nature, including to understand, simulate, salvage, facilitate, augment, remediate and nurture. The show has been jointly organised with the Cube design museum in Kerkrade, Netherlands, where it is being shown simultaneously until 20 January 2020. Here are some of the highlights:
