From the Publisher. Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900–2000 brings together an unprecedented collection of objects and concepts from around the world in order to investigate the fascinating confluence of modern design and childhood. Surveying more than one hundred years of school architecture, playgrounds, toys and games, educational materials, nurseries, furniture, animation, advertising, books, and clothing, this richly illustrated catalogue, published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, illuminates how progressive design has shaped the physical, intellectual, and emotional development of children and, conversely, how models of children’s play and pedagogy have inspired designers’ creative experimentation.
