Intelligent Designs

Two of the curators for "Design Life Now" the national design triennial at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum join us to talk about today’s design and what it says about today’s society. Barbara Bloemink is the deputy director for curatorial affairs at the Museum of Arts & Design, and Ellen Lupton is the director of the graphic design MFA program at Maryland Institute College of Art, a curator of contemporary design at the Cooper-Hewitt and the author of D.I.Y.: Design It Yourself (Princeton Architectural Press, 2007).
