Indo-German Seminar: Bauhaus @ 100


Date: April 8, 2018
Venue: Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, New Delhi

Bauhaus, the modern school of design thinking with strong pedagogic goals remains a light house of architectural education, since a century. Today, on almost 100 years of its influence and existence, is a moment to pause, look back and look ahead at the future of architecture as a discipline, pedagogy and the future. Amidst new philosophies of urban transformations, socio economic frameworks and an inevitable technological control of human lives, how could the Bauhaus vision re-kindle the fundamentals of a sustainable future as an idea. From an industrial precision to a philosophy of minimalism, the challenges of ubiquity in global urban forms and identity crisis in a contemporary world remain debates of rethinking architecture, re interpreting art and re visiting the design processes. Experts from India and Germany will come together to think and reflect upon the future of architecture and its education, under the historic moments of revisiting the past 100 years of Bauhaus.
