THE NEW BAUHAUS MUSEUM - Resting on the description of Bauhaus by Walter #Gropius: "Only perfect harmony in the technical function and in the proportions of form can produce beauty”, our design for the New Bauhaus #Museum is a fusion of clear geometry and technological elements, that offer a great amount of flexibility and integration to Dessau's City Centre. Life in a city is multiple, ambiguous and in constant change. Our aim was to create a Museum that connects and interacts with those multiple settings of daily life in Dessau in a very direct and responsive way. Due to its ability to transform itself, the museum can react to various needs within the City Park and offers the possibility to become a connecting hub, which shapes the community around it and links its visitors to the vision of the Bauhaus era.
The #Bauhaus was an era of #innovation and technical achievements, a new clarity in architecture, design and art. The Bauhaus is not about form. It is about the performance of form. Not about shape, but about the logic of shape. Not about aesthetics, but how to adapt aesthetics to a daily use. © CHRIS PRECHT @elloarchitecture
