California is at the center of new developments in design and technology. The state has pioneered an approach to design driven by collaboration, environmental and social awareness, and new digital capacity. Through conversations with curators and scholars, this course will critically examine the history and future of design in California, tackling topics from the counterculture and the birth of personal computing to smart cities and big data.
