Schaeffer begins by discussing revival styles of furniture design, and giving a survey of 20th century furniture design, then goes on to speak about architecture and color theory. Sound quality is distorted for much of side 1. Transcribed Nov. 2, 1961. Original recording is undated. Side 2 of this reel contains unidentified percussive music, which appears to be unrelated to the lecture on side 1.
