“Mau” follows the unlikely story of design visionary Bruce Mau and his ever-optimistic push for massive change

“Mau” follows the unlikely story of Canadian design visionary Bruce Mau and his ever-optimistic push for massive change. Over the span of his career, this creative dark horse has expanded the definition of design. From creating Coca-Cola's global sustainability platform, to rethinking a 1000-year plan for the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. From working with the greatest living architects like Rem Koolhaas and Frank Gehry, to designing a social movement in Guatemala. As we weave in and out of Mau's work, past and present, we follow his most important project yet: his own life.
