The United States maintains one of the world's largest economies, but a record number of Americans live in poverty and, as income gaps grow, social mobility is out of reach for many more.

The third book to result from Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum's groundbreaking series of exhibitions dedicated to socially responsible design, 'By the People: Designing a Better America' features sixty design profiles, nine essays and interviews, and more than 450 images that bring to light design's important role in addressing social, economic, environmental, and spatial disparities. Worker-owned enterprises, productive landscapes, affordable housing, alternative transportation, and civic toolkits are just a few of the inspiring designs for a more just and equitable America.
