ARTJ 398: Designing Everyday Life in Modern Japan
4-6:40 PM on F


Why do Japanese things look and work the way they do?

In ARTJ 398, we seek to answer this question, looking deeply into the cultural context, creative practices, and people who shaped Japanese design for the modern era, drawing from 100 years of fashion, architecture, product, communication, and more.

Classes will be led online (quasi-synchronously) by instructor Chris Palmieri, a designer practicing in Tokyo for 20 years, and will include guest lectures by working designers, artists and scholars based in Japan.
