100 Years of Bauhaus' Design Philosophy

As we enter a new school year, I feel we have to call out and give recognition to the inspiration that was Bauhaus. One hundred years ago, in 1919 this school taught design principles that we still see in practice today.

"The Bauhaus was arguably the single most influential modernist art school of the 20th century. Its approach to teaching, and to the relationship between art, society, and technology, had a major impact both in Europe and in the United States long after its closure under Nazi pressure in 1933." -theartstory

Since I had the good fortune of entering the field much after the philosophy came about, I have the advantage of seeing things in retrospect; their fundamental principles taught me that design solves problems and art is an added layer. 

Here's a throwback to the design school days in this design blog I came across "Five lessons the Bauhaus School can offer today’s designers"

Ashima,

This was an awesome reminder of where my education came from. After operating in the professional world for a few years, it's easy to forget that this approach was once revolutionary. Thanks for the contribution!

Caitlin
