Course Description

ONLINE: Midcentury modern design has enjoyed a huge resurgence in popularity and now seems to be everywhere. The design — as represented in the furniture and decor of Eames, Saarinen, Bertoia and many others — is often seen in today’s design and architectural magazines; is found in restaurants, offices and your own home; and is garnering huge prices at auctions. What is it that makes this era’s design so recognizable and engaging? This course will explore this American design movement in architecture and interiors that was popular from roughly 1945 to 1969, conveying an appreciation and understanding of the movement and some of the important and remarkable architects, designers and furniture of the time. Lectures will include ample time for questions and answers. Students should expect to participate in discussions and bring a passion for learning about this design era of clean lines, very creative but utilitarian forms and colors, and much more. | Lecture + Q&A.
