Bauhaus IN.SIGHT


Program Description



Points, lines and areas as a starting point of the bauhaus foundation course create in their interplay space arrangements. In combination with material, textures, light or colour they evolve into characteristic places.

We start with dot, line and composition in two-dimensional exercises. These experiences will be transferred into the three-dimensional area and expanded with materiality, light and colour. In the alternating process of perception, analysis, experiment and creation, basic rules of design and specified architectural space design will be derived. The visual and haptic cognition is the source for the design of several architectural models.

Reflective information about theories and works of Bauhaus masters, also shown in original places, gives the unique chance to transform the design language and teaching concepts of the historical school into the present. Based on detailed perception of the tangible place of the Weimar Bauhaus buildings you will create a transportable "Raum-Book "- a kind of threedimensional diary of the two weeks Bauhaus experience.

The course language is English.
