Design Radicals: Creativity and Protest at Wurster Hall
Environmental Design Library, 210 Wurster Hall
October 16 – December 19, 2014
The shock waves of Berkeley’s Free Speech Movement of 1964 reverberated within Wurster Hall, transforming the College of Environmental Design into a Laboratory for experiments in countercultural art and politics. Design Radicals surveys student and faculty ventures in the graphic art of anti-war protest, hands-on research into commune building and the creation of ecologically sustainable structures, and efforts to recast architecture, landscape architecture and community planning as participatory enterprises. In telling the story of Wurster Hall’s Design Radicals, the rich holdings of the Environmental Design Archives and the privately held Docs Populi poster collection will provide inspiration for a new generation of design activists. The College of Environmental Design Library will display posters, images, and artifacts of Berkeley’s expanded field of countercultural design practice and pedagogy.
