              This new volume addresses the lasting contribution made by Central European emigre designers to twentieth-century American design and architecture. The contributors examine how oppositional stances in debates concerning consumption and modernism's social agendas taken by designer...s such as Felix Augenfeld, Joseph Binder, Josef Frank, Paul T. Frankl, Frederick Kiesler, Richard Neutra, and R. M. Schindler in Europe prefigured their later adoption or rejection by American culture. They argue that emigres and refugees from fascist Europe such as Gyoergy Kepes, Paul Laszlo, Victor Papanek, Bernard Rudofsky, Xanti Schawinsky, and Eva Zeisel drew on the particular experiences of their home countries, and networks of emigre and exiled designers in the United States, to develop a humanist, progressive, and socially inclusive design culture which continues to influence design practice today.

The contributors to this unique volume argue that these r...efugees from fascist Europe drew on their experiences in their home countries, and on networks of emigre and exiled designers in the United States, in order to develop a design culture that was humanist, progressive and socially inclusive, and which continues to influence design practice today.

              Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Papanek's approach seems more relevant than ever in today's challenging times. -Zo Ryan, Curator of Architecture and Design, Art Institute of Chicago I hold Papanek in the highest regard, not only as a great thinker but as a rabble-rouser. -Emily Pilloton, author of Design Revolu...tion The designer, author and design activist Victor J. Papanek anticipated an understanding of design as a tool for political change and social good that is more relevant today than ever. He was one of the first designers in the mainstream arena to critically question design's social and ecological consequences, introducing a new set of ethical questions into the design field. Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design presents an encompassing overview of Papanek's oeuvre, at the heart of which stood his preoccupation with the socially marginalized and his commitment to the interests of areas then called the Third World, as well as his involvement in the fields of ecology, bionics, sustainability and anti-consumerism. Alongside essays and interviews discussing Papanek's relevance in his own era, this book also presents current perspectives on his enduring legacy and its influence on contemporary design theory. Original Papanek family photographs, art and design work, drawings, correspondence and countless materials from the Victor J. Papanek Foundation archive at the University of Applied Arts Vienna are reproduced here for the first time, alongside work by both Papanek's contemporaries and designers working today. Born in Vienna and trained in England and the United States, Victor Papanek (1923-98) is considered a pioneer of sustainable and humanitarian design. Having studied architecture at Cooper Union in New York, and creative engineering at MIT, Papanek taught at the Ontario College of Art, RISD, Purdue University and the California Institute of the Arts, and was Chairman of the Design Department at Kansas City Art Institute from 1976 to 1981, and Professor of Architecture and Design at th

              Exhibitions have long played a crucial role in defining disciplinary histories. This fascinating volume examines the impact of eleven groundbreaking architecture and design exhibitions held between 1956 and 2006, revealing the different ways they have shaped how these disciplines... are understood and practiced today. Featuring written and photographic descriptions of the shows and illuminating essays from noted curators, scholars, critics, designers, and artists, As Seen: Exhibitions that Made Architecture and DesignHistory explores the multifaceted ways in which exhibitions have reflected on contemporary dilemmas and opened up new processes and ways of working. Providing a fresh perspective on some of the most important exhibitions of the 20th century from America, Europe, and Japan, including This Is Tomorrow, Expo '70, and Massive Change, this book offers a new framework for thinking about how exhibitions can function as a transformative force in the field of architecture and design.

              Shows how colonial settlers from the northern hemisphere adapted the age-old festivals of Christmas, New Year and Easter to a new world of upside-down seasons, unfamiliar vegetation and cultural diversity. This work tells us that along with vision, dedication and a capacity for h...ard work, our forebears also brought jollity and frivolity.
