Environmental Design / A New Modernism

September 25--December 22, 2009

Organized to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the University of California, Berkeley, College of Environmental Design (CED), this exhibition focuses on seminal moments in the evolution of the CED founders' vision. Founded in 1959, the new College combined the Departments of Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning, City and Regional Planning, and Decorative Arts. During the next half century in Wurster Hall, its new home, the College developed innovative programs in the social sciences, building technology, and research including the establishment of several research institutes. The exhibit features original drawings, photographs, documents, books, and artifacts drawn from the Environmental Design Archives, the Environmental Design Library, the Bancroft Library, the University Archives, IURD and CEDR, and private collections.
