9780415475822: Bauhaus Dream-house: Modernity and Globalization (Architext)

A highly original and innovative study that brings critical social theory to bear on the ideas of architectural and design education at the Bauhaus – tracing the spread and influence of these ideas worldwide.

Developed in post WW1 Germany, the principles of Bauhaus architecture and design were transferred by some of its leading figures to architecture schools at Harvard, Chicago and the IIT. Yet in the postwar era, they also became increasingly influential in architecture schools in Western and Central Europe, Japan, South America, Africa and the Middle East. This book provides a critical examination of the profound social, cultural and spatial consequences of these developments and the erasure of class, race, gender and culture which the ‘modernisation’ of design embodied.

Written to appeal to an extensive readership, not only in the fields of architectural and design education, but in architectural history and in critical pedagogy more generally, it is also for teachers and students in German art and cultural history and the many architects worldwide who continue to be fascinated by the ideas of the Bauhaus.

About the Author:

Katerina Rüedi Ray is Professor and Director of the School of Art at Bowling Green State University. Former Director of the School of Architecture at the University of Illinois at Chicago, she studied at the Architectural Association and University College London and has taught, published and exhibited extensively in Europe and the USA.

Review:

'At the same time as filling out the general knowledge gleaned from the corpus of texts on the Bauhaus that preceded it Bauhaus Dream-House is a dramatic reminder that the fourteen year troubled existence of this school generated ideas that were powerful enough to maintain their relevance on a global stage' – International Journal of Education through Art

'...this book can appeal to an extensive readership not only in the field of visual arts education but also in history, pedagogy and even business. Anyone who is curious about the phenomenon of the Bauhaus will also find this book fascinating.'–  Leonardo

'Engaging and erudite'Planning Perspectives

'Bauhaus Dream-House effectively challenges the reader to re-examine not only the conventional narratives of the Bauhaus and its role in the development of modernism, but also its out-sized influence as a pedagogical model...Indeed, this book is particularly valuable for those teaching in schools of art, architecture, and design, as many of these institutions still aim to replicate, to varying degrees, the Bauhaus system.'Design Issues

 ‘The book is thoroughly researched, sometimes provocative and often fascinating, and its strength lies in Ruedi Ray’s identification of this misappropriation worldwide, in locations as far-flung as Turkey and Brazil. The sections on the USSR and the 1938 MOMA exhibition are outstanding. Her research into the Bauhaus firm, the GmbH, is a fresh insight into the financial workings of the institution and the pressure it was under.’ – Melissa Trimingham, Journal of Theatre Research Review, University of Kent, UK

"The strength of this book is its radical departure from the assumptions that have governed  most earlier literature on this subject... Ray's book offers compelling evidence of a welcome shift in the writing of history of the Bauhaus, and indeed of modern architecture and design in general."- Kathleen James-Chakraborty, The Society of Architectural Historians

"... Ruedi Ray contributes to the existing scholarship on the Bauhaus's pedagogy by engaging with theory and using unconventional tools to provide new interpretations of some of its aspects that would have remained hidden if analysed only through the traditional instruments of historical research."  - Daniela N. Prina, Journal of Design History, Vol. 25, No. 2
