It’s been a big year for Bauhaus enthusiasts: The famous design school turned 100, an occasion marked by everything from the opening of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation in Germany to a very special Google Doodle. For the centenary, Google Arts & Culture also launched Bauhaus Everywhere, an online museum chock-full of archival images and new perspectives. And we considered how designers can still learn from the Bauhaus, in an excellent, in-depth essay by Google UX Director Jens Riegelsberger. (Key takeaway: “The exactitude of science and engineering is feared to remove the room for creative exploration. The Bauhaus, on the other hand, embraced science, engineering, and new methods of production.”) Still hungry for more? Our friends over at AIGA Eye on Design programmed a week of Bauhaus stories, exploring everything from the school’s gender politics to its typography. Happy reading, and happy centennial.
