Building Blocks of a Relative Universe

Life is full of connectivity in many styles through different sizes, forms, and functions. Through a variety of elements, the project was focused on exploring and identifying an example of this connection on a broad scale using the abstract thinking of Bauhaus. The important components of the design function were scale, minimalist design, and key distinct features portrayed through the progression that translated the idea of connectedness to viewers. To create a flow for the design it was decided that a diagram of magnification would work best because it is something familiar that many people could recognize and understand.

Bauhaus as a movement was a rebellion of the commons against conventions, be it; social, cultural, industrial, traditional or national. The expression of this revolt, “Bauhaus school of thought” left its mark on every possible industry. Bold, simple, geometric, exclusively became stark attributes of this style. The spark leading to Bauhaus was essentially the dying culture of arts and crafts in Germany. Industrialization had left a degenerative society behind it. Bauhaus brilliantly eliminated this disintegration of art and design in daily life. This ideology brought back life to households through design. Introspection of the same parameters in an Indian context shines light on an array of gaps needing to be bridged in our society, but not necessarily the same issue that plagued Germany.

Bauhaus Draft

Beginning in 1919, based in Weimar, Germany, new design ideas and styles emerged from the school known as the Bauhaus. The founder, Walter Gropius, believed in the idea of gesamtkunstwerk, or ‘synthesis of the arts'. Gropius wanted to teach design as a combination of all art forms and translate that into a unified expression of art. Through the design intent of the Bauhaus, the world was given a new style of design that generated compositional forms into a new type of space that people interact with based on function over form.

More than just a simple design movement with geometric and abstract forms, Bauhaus represented a real manifesto with a strong social role. The main goal was to make art accessible to every social class.
The troubled context of the post-war period played an important role in the new way of creating and innovating by limitation. As Walter Gropius himself was outlying, the limitation makes the creative mind inventive.
To make art accessible to everyone, Bauhaus has been naturally and rapidly oriented towards the industrial process. Its purpose was to create aesthetical, simple, and functional objects adapted to mass production so that anyone could afford them

The Bauhaus Movement Design Intention

The Bauhaus movement inspired a geometric abstract design style that was used to bridge the gap between art and industry. “Bauhaus” is a German word that means “house of building”. The movement influenced the design of several well-known architects of the time, some including Walter Gropius, Hannes Meyer, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Similar to the work of these famous architects the use of Bauhaus design can be studied and brought into the architecture world. Gropius, one of the founding fathers of the Bauhaus movement, directed his school with the idea of mass production. He believed that beautiful aesthetically pleasing buildings should be accessible to the mass society instead of individual structures for the wealthy elite. This can be seen almost everywhere but heavily stems back to the Bauhaus movement design style
