Bauhaus // Weimar, Dessau & Berlin

To some, the Bauhaus is known as the catalyst to the modernist movement. Suprisingly, to many locals and non-designers, it is just a local university or museum. So many principals of Bauhaus design are still in use today. Collaboration with other design disciplines, the use of available materials to cut costs, minimalism and the use of the golden ratio are among many of the theories and best practices that are still utilized in today’s modern design process. We had the opportunity to visit the three locations of the Bauhaus while visiting Germany.

It was amazing to see in person, what most of us have only seen in our design history books. Now onward to our Berlin studio visits!
