Culturally relevant and quintessentially American, design in the 1960's fused a slick, modern vibe with a hipster aesthetic. Explore this iconic period through a hands-on, fast-paced seminar which will inform and inspire. Students will gain an understanding of the language of design of the 1960's, its antecedents in modernism and its regional and international variations. By looking at design in this period as a cultural history and using the lens of social georgraphy, the class will connect the impact of the 60's with culture, style, form and making today.
