If / Then is a showcase of over eighty design solutions created by graduating students at The University of the Arts. The exhibition operates under the belief that “design” is a solution to a set of distinct pressures. Its submissions address six different design problems—universal versus specialized needs, social issues, urban exploration and repurposing, public and historic influences, the development of networking and identity, and storytelling.

Ultimately, this exhibition is a collection of perspectives by problem solvers, who ask the question, “if any of these pressures are presented, then how can they be responded to meaningfully?”
