This course will examine key American architecture and design movements that were shaped into compelling "lifestyles" not only by the design community, but also by media figures and tastemakers. The role of books, magazines, exhibitions, films, department stores, and museums will be emphasized in the creation of such socially and culturally significant movements as modernism, the colonial revival, and the arts and crafts. The impact of powerful events in the nation's history, such as World War II, will also be discussed.
