Building 101

In 2019, the Bauhaus celebrates the 100th anniversary of its foundation. Building 101 intends to reflect on the contemporaneity of its principles and methods, having as starting point the Workshops that integrated the first curricular plan of Bauhaus – Stone, Wood, Clay, Color, Metal, Glass and Textiles. In the words of Walter Gropius, “the ultimate goal of all art is the building!”, an affirmation that emphasizes the fundamental role of crafts and arts in the development of innovative solutions in architecture. This Associated Project includes eight talks and a masterclass, to discuss matters and materials – their properties, transformation processes, applications and contemporary challenges – in spaces of training and creation.
