Bauhaus School Of Art

The Bauhaus (translates literally to “House Of Construction”) was a school of art based in Germany that was famous for its approach to design and the combination of crafts and the fine arts that it taught and publicised. This approach was mainly based around the principle “form must follow function”, a principle which has been applied to a colossal amount of design projects in the modern world despite the school only operating in a short window between 1919 and 1933.
If you looked around you in the room I assume you are in right now, nearly everything that has had a reasonable amount of effort put into its visual design, has been done so ergonomically and around its function, which show how influentical and far reaching the movement in this school actually was, which I think it quite amazing.
