The Bauhaus art school opened nearly a century ago in Weimar, Germany in 1919. Bauhaus, which could be translated as “the School of Building,” began with the idea that the ultimate purpose of fine arts is architecture. The school brought together design, industrial arts, fine arts, craftsmanship, theatre, and many other fields to produce a large number of designers, architects, scenographists, and artists who would go on to have a major impact on the world. Even after closing its doors in 1933, the school continued to influence life in the 20th century through those who continued to expound its philosophy. Today, daily life is punctuated with objects and circumstances infused with the Bauhaus philosophy and spirit.
Some wonderful customs and handicrafts are gradually disappearing around the world, and Germany offers valuable hints for ways to keep these delights alive.
