What is the Bauhaus?
Children Explore the Bauhaus Dessau
Katja Klaus, Jutta Stein, Ingolf Kern, Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau (ed.)
Many things seem strange in this angular building in Dessau they call “The Bauhaus”. The radiators hang like paintings on the walls, windows are opened with a chain drive, nearly all the lamps are round and the chairs are covered in a yarn of metal. Behind every construction, every item of furniture, can be found a brilliant idea. This book contains the things that children find fascinating about the Bauhaus. Its fifty questions, with answers and illustrations, inform children and familiarise them with the world-famous school of art design and architecture.
