LETTERFORM ARCHIVE | It’s Time to Throw the Bauhaus Under the Bus

October 26, 2019 to October 27, 2019

Hosted/Organized by: Letterform Archive

After more than 100 years of living with the immense pedagogical impact of the Bauhaus we believe it’s time to question and investigate this important, but now dated framework that has largely defined design and design education. As the first art and design school to directly tie the classroom experience to a professional orientation (read workshop), it is high time for a rethinking and remaking of the academic design studio into a 21st-century model.
