by Danielle Alio | May 13, 2013

A group of Princeton University Ph.D. students have been involved in a research project led by Professor of Architecture Beatriz Colomina that looks at the influence of architecture on Playboy Magazine from 1953 to 1979, and the magazine's impact on architecture and design culture in the United States through its vision of a desirable contemporary lifestyle.

Play the "Playboy Architecture" video. This video focuses on Colomina and her students' "Playboy Architecture" exhibition, which was created from the research and was recently displayed inside the Architecture Building on campus. Read more here.
