Design as a Social Act: Library Digital Package Trilogy + Short Film
This trilogy of films shows how the social upheaval and design shifts of the 1960s to 1980s led to the development of social approaches to designing the built environment. The documentary draws on ten oralhistory interviews with designers and researchers of architecture, landscape, and urban planning.
In addition to the three films on the original DVD, this digital package includes a short 17 minute cut that includes some of the the best excerpts of all three parts of the 75 minute trilogy to give an overview of the topic for a general audience.
The digital files should be housed in a library database available by login, but not available to the public.
Part 1: Social Factors (35 min)
