After putting his career as an architect on hold to fight the first world war between 1914 and 1918, Walter Gropius sensed the world needed a radical change, a change in which arts and architecture would play a fundamental role.
His previous ideas of what architecture should be didn’t quite make sense anymore. His new vision of architecture was one where all arts came together to re-imagine the material world, where craftsmanship would reclaim its leading position in the production process and where artists would find a way to imprint their soul and essence into rational, useful and beautiful objects that could be mass-produced following the ideals of Fordism and Taylorism.
It was 1919 in post-war Weimar, Germany. Walter Gropius had just founded the Bauhaus. One of the most radical evolutions architecture has ever experienced was about to begin.
Immerse yourself in the world of the Bauhaus, their mindset, their ideals, their vision… Take this opportunity to revisit the work of some of the master architects of modern architecture, which helped shape the concept of what we understand as architecture in the modern world.
The new 2021 Bauhaus Campus will be a space of creativity and vanguardism, where new concepts and ideas for the architecture of tomorrow can be debated and explored.
The impact of the new Bauhaus Campus might not come right away, the same way the influence of the original Bauhaus was not obvious until many years after it was dismantled. But one should always trust that, by pushing the limits and challenging the norm, we are helping architecture stay current and move forward, and hopefully, make the world a better place.
