Abstract

“The Bauhaus believes the machine to be our modern medium of design and seeks to come to terms with it.” –Walter Gropius, The Theory and Organization of the Bauhaus German architect

Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus in 1919 and after fourteen prolific years, it closed. Despite its short tenure, the ramifications of the Bauhaus are still present in architectural education and practice. Its core objective was a radical, and still unrealized, concept: the unity of art and technology. The introduction of contemporary digital tools, techniques, and materials make this unity possible in new and profound ways thereby extending the Bauhaus project into the present day as a meaningful model for architectural education and digital craft.
