THE BAUHAUS ∞ Modernism Design Movement

Friday, September 11th, 2009

In the 1920’s a school of architecture and design emerged in Weimar and later in Dessau, Germany called Bauhaus or literally, “House of Building”. The school’s focus was on defining design for an emerging lifestyle dictated by social changes during the early 20th century such as liberalism, radical experimentation in the arts, and the abolition of censorship. The movement gained much prominence in Europe, specifically Germany, where one of its founders Walter Gropius dictated that art and architecture should have no distinction between form and function, thus literally transforming the architecture world into a style that is universal. Through Bauhaus, the International Style later emerged through its simple, clean lines, absence of ornamentation, and harmony between the function of an object or a building and its design.
