Design educator and historian Daniella Ohad presents a unique online course exploring the foundation of modern design history. This 5-session course (the third in a series this year) provides an overview of the early and radical phases of modern design, from the advent of 19th century through the early years of the 20th century. Themes include the Arts and Crafts Movement in England and the US; Art Nouveau in France, Belgium, and Eastern Europe; Jugenstil; Viennese Secession; Gaudi; Tiffany; and more. By examining interiors, furniture, objects, buildings, designers, makers, methods of production, and material culture, students will develop an understanding of the history of design and its visual vocabulary.
