Environmental Design Archives’ Exhibit: “Designing People”

The Environmental Design Archives’ new exhibit Designing People examines over a century of representations of people in architectural and landscape drawings. Designers often include figures (pets, children, shoppers, workers, etc.) to convey the scale and functionality of a proposed architectural design and humanize a space, but their representations of average, day-to-day people can also reveal interesting details about the time period and the people living in it.

Located in the Volkmann Reading Room at the Environmental Design Library, the exhibit will be available February 11 – May 19, 2015.
