Cooper Hewitt People's Design Award

The Argonne-led "Array of Things" project is a network of interactive, modular sensor boxes around Chicago collecting real-time data on the city’s environment, infrastructure, and activity for research and public use. It has been nominated for a design award — which is voted on by the public — by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
