Google believes there’s a design school everywhere you go, thanks to the Bauhaus. The tech giant’s Arts & Culture program has teamed up with the legendary Bauhaus Dessau, along with six partners like the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the IIT Institute of Design, to illustrate the Bauhaus’ influence on the world’s architecture and beyond.
The new collection, Bauhaus Everywhere, showcases how the minimal and geometrical style has become a part of every aspect of design a century later, in spite of ever-changing trends. “Bauhaus is architecture,” Google Arts & Culture details, but it is also “costume design,” “furniture design,” and “textile design.”
The visual treasure trove features over 10,000 digitized artworks and objects, as well as virtual tours of Bauhaus-style buildings through 45 digital exhibitions. It also brings recognition to key characters, teachers and women that helped perpetuate the Bauhaus movement.
How-to guides like “How to Dress Like a Bauhaus Student,” and “How to Decorate your House, Bauhaus-Style,” offer more insight into how design enthusiasts can inject more Bauhaus elements into their everyday lives.
Also notable are the street-view tours of boxy, Bauhaus-style sites like the Gropius House and Moholy-Nagy, in addition to sightings of unbuilt buildings, “sketches, scribbles and vague descriptions” in AR through the Google Arts & Culture App.
