From the Research Lab: Environmental Design – Architecture, Science and Politics in Postwar America

This lecture will introduce the term “Environmental Design” as it was used by American architects after World War II to describe a vision of a professional practice that was rooted in American Progressive politics, rather than in the European avant-garde. This approach emphasized scientific inquiry and democratic processes as the keys to social reform, as well as a conception of humans as organisms in need of a supportive environment. The history of this term widens our understanding of modernism and modernist architecture, especially in the postwar period.

Avigail Sachs, Ph.D., is a specialist in the theory of housing, Associate Professor at the College of Architecture, University of Tennessee.
