Norman Bel Geddes: FutureLand exhibit at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, TX.

If you’re like me and have been intrigued by the image on this poster for the Norman Bel Geddes exhibit at the Ransom Center, you’d better get a move on because the exhibit is closing January 6th! From Austin’s Cultural Campus:

Norman Bel Geddes (1893–1958) was a designer, futurist, and urban planner who sought to transform modern American society through design and his dynamic vision of the future. When you drive on an interstate highway, attend a multimedia Broadway show, dine in a sky-high revolving restaurant, or watch a football game in an all-weather stadium, you owe a debt of gratitude to Geddes.

If you don’t live in Austin or can’t get to the Ransom Center before next Thursday, there’s also a book on the subject:

Norman Bel Geddes Designs America book by Donald Albrecht.
