  • Examine interior design of the period after mid-century modern through contemporary

About this course:

This course is an overview of the eternal tension between designs that make an aesthetic statement and designs that actually respect how they will be used by the people who have to live with them. The course is a humorous and entertaining stroll through the history of interior architecture, interior design, furnishings, and accessories that examines how the desire to make a statement often results in designs that are uncomfortable, unusable, or outright dangerous.
