The Modernism Design class will give students basic skills to appraise 20th – 21st century design.  It will provide analysis of key designers and manufacturers of furniture and decorative arts.  The course will cover historical context, social economics, materials, technology, and design movements.  Primary and secondary markets for modernism to contemporary design will be explored, with appraisal approaches for fair market value, and replacement value.  Case studies of designers, artists, and architects will be examined to show the connections and contrasts of design cultures in Europe, the Americas, and the impact of the global design aesthetic.

The course has two classroom days that take place from 8am - 5pm and has a tour on the first day.
