Bauhaus100 at Winchester School of Art

This year marks the centenary of the Bauhaus movement – a lively school of ideas and a field for experimenting in the free and applied arts, design, architecture and educational methods.

Founded in Germany by the artchitect Walter Gropius, this movement shaped a new understanding of modernity after the First World War.

“Together let us conceive and create the new building of the future, which will embrace architecture and sculpture and painting in one unity and which will rise one day toward heaven from the hands of a million workers, like the crystal symbol of a new faith.”

     – 1919 Bauhaus Manifesto

Inspired by Bauhaus design, our Library Assistant Bren O’Donnell has created a visual exploration of the movements’s influence on the history and design of Winchester School of Art.
