The Bauhaus: I Heart School

...

19 August 2012

I have more to learn about Walter Gropius’s/Mies van der Rohe’s Bauhaus School of Art, but this visit to the Bauhaus Archives Museum in Berlin has piqued my interest.  A commitment to functional beauty — a school devoted to it — is something we probably consider overly idealistic, and past its time now.  But is it?  As both a writer and teacher, I hope not.

An excellent exhibit and amazing building/gallery space.
