Description


Is design art? To what extent does form follow function? These elementary and once revolutionary questions directly relate to the Bauhaus and were posed by the British Arts and Crafts movement fifty years prior. The present volume delves into the prehistory of the Bauhaus and integrates it into the European-wide emergence of modernism—from Arts and Crafts and the Glasgow School via the Jugendstil, the Deutscher Werkbund and De Stijl, to the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau.
