Who Lives in White Cubes?
Jutta Stein, Ingolf Kern (authors), Kitty Kahane (illustrator), Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau (ed.)
Lotte and Max meet Titus in Dessau, and he takes them on a journey back in time to 1927. The children encounter Kandinsky, Klee and Gropius, who all live in houses that look like white cubes. A lot of things in the Masters’ Houses are strange. You take showers in front of a big window and you sleep in a room painted black. Lotte and Max experiment with the Feininger brothers in the darkroom and go to a fancy dress ball with the members of the Bauhaus community. The Bauhaus is just a kindergarten for grown-ups.

MIES VAN DER ROHE
Er prägte das Motto „weniger ist mehr“ – Ludwig Mies van der Rohe war einer der Gründerväter der modernen Architektur und beeinflusste die Ästhetik des Städtebaus im 20. Jahrhundert maßgeblich, wenn auch nicht immer unumstritten.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is one of the outstanding exponents of New Building. He achieved legendary fame as director of the Bauhaus in Berlin and as a teacher at the IIT in Chicago. The pavilion built in 1929 at the world exhibition in Barcelona and the Tugendhat House in Brno, completed a year later, became incunabula of modernism.
