About Sagmeister & Walsh: Beauty

In this groundbreaking highly visual book, world-renowned designers Stefan Sagmeister and Jessica Walsh set out on a mission: to find out what beauty is and the many ways that it impacts our lives. They turn to philosophy, history, and science to understand why we are drawn to beauty and how it influences the way we feel and behave. Determined to translate their findings into action, Sagmeister & Walsh show us how beauty can improve the world.

In order to accommodate the demand for tickets, this lecture will be held at the Ferst Center on the Georgia Tech Campus.
