“The ultimate goal of all arts is the building.”
Bauhaus was one of the most influential cultural movements of the 20th century, reaching far beyond architecture to affect all pillars of design including graphics, typography, products, furniture and even today’s digital gadgets. Originating from Weimar, Germany, Bauhaus has been shaping cities and everyday life all over the world.
‘Bauhaus Meets Hong Kong’ leads us through the Bauhaus journey: commencing with the profound and always insightful Bauhaus founder, Walter Gropius. We then take a global perspective of the movement and explore how the Bauhaus spirit has been shaping the skyline of Hong Kong. From ‘form follows function’, to ‘virtual into physical’, we discover how new technologies like iTWO are continuing the Bauhaus movement with digital transformation, to achieve the next ultimate goal of the building industry – digitalization.
