ARTHI 260 - History of Design


4 credit(s)
Historical survey of 19th and 20th century design. Links dominant trends, theories and representative designs to their social, historic, cultural, political, technological and aesthetic context. Close analysis of individual objects are interwoven with overarching themes, including the changing role of the designer in society, production processes, materials, the role of the body in design, and the significance of design in culture and society. Our primary concern is industrial design, but other media (furniture, ceramics, glass, etc.), exhibitions and educational institutions, as well as the impact of technology and new social uses are considered.
Offered: Alternate years.
