Design History Revolution (Day 1)

2:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Defining its terms broadly, this two-day conference examines not only designed objects but also spaces and systems. It addresses a range of historical periods and geographical locations, and contact zones between these constructed categories.

The keynote speaker will be Barry Bergdoll, Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art.
