Pratt Institute's
Design Exhibit

Photographs Of Models
Of Mass Production
Figure Prominently
An exhibit of industrial design pro-
blems carried out by advanced stu-
dents of Pratt Institute, Brooklyn,
N.Y.. is now on display in thy College
of Architecture and Design until
Dec. 14.
The designs are shown dramatic-
ally in striking enlargements of pho-
tographs of the models made in pro-
jects. Articles in mass production
are the subjects of the designs. These
are first executed in sketches, then
worked out in clay or plaster models,
and finally made into the finished
product in wood, metal, or plastics.
Various ideas for one particular pro-
blem are presented, as the many de-
signs for different models of radios
show. Some of the other designs
shown are for free plaster sculptures,
electric irons, lamps of various kinds,
automobile bodies and several types
of furniture.
According to Mr. Sidney G. War-
ner of the decorative design depart-
ment of the architecture college, the
display-shows forcibly that industrial,
design involves more than drawing.
