Description:
This course explores the role of design history in the "now" and today. Design greatly benefits the consumer, manufacturer and the world at large. It influences policy and socio-economic initiatives while maintaining its aesthetics, poetics and inherently substantive behavioral impact. It can translate technical resolutions into human format and act as a bridge between the abstraction of research and the complexity of the real world. Designers are advocating roles that are more and more integral to the evolution of our society. This course examines the role of design and designers, consumers and manufacturers. It reviews established theories of the past and positions them in relation to new forms of design. Open to: IND Juniors only 3 CR Pre-requisite(s): PUID 3100 Critical Studies in Design 1
