20th Century Design documents the evolution of design and technology throughout the century. The series charts the explosive effects of art, everyday life, politics, and the new technologies of the time on the development and progression of design.

The evolution of art deco looks at modernism, from post-World War I optimism through the Great Depression to the outbreak of World War II. Learn about design classics, such as the Bakelite radio and the Chrysler Building, and designers from Clarice Cliff to Buckminster Fuller. Discover the technologies of the time, such as mass-produced plastics.
