We live our lives surrounded by rules. Today, these have been forced into major shifts by changes in industrial and social structures. This exhibition uses multi-faceted perspectives to explore how design can assist in the formation of the rules by which we will live together in future societies, together with their roles and values. Instead of regarding rules as restrictions, this exhibition aims to cultivate a shared capability to approach rules in a positive way, seeing them as means to expand society, with more fruitful future possibilities.

One hundred years after the opening of this exhibition will be 2121. Our concept derives from pondering how the world will be in that year, which coincidentally shares numbers with 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT, the name of our institute. The exhibition goes beyond imagining foreseen futures, and uses behavior and outputs apparent in today’s daily life to visualize ideas concerning the future. This exhibition will be formulated together with designers, artists, thinkers, engineers, educational bodies and companies. Taking the stance of 'thinking about the future,' the exhibition will provide opportunities for nurturing rich insight into how to create a "future" with design.
