Bauhaus on Campus

I had a walk around the university campus and took some photos and did a sketch of some things which I thought were inspired by the Bauhaus movement.

The architecture of these buildings were definitely inspired by the Bauhaus movement. Numbers 1 and 5 had quite simple shapes to them – made up mostly of geometric blocks and windows. Image 1 also had some orange coloured blocks which represent the Bauhaus movement really well.

Images 2 and 3 show that the Bauhaus inspiration at University isn’t just for the architecture – it is also found in furniture and objects too. They both have quite a basic but practical design.

Overall the Bauhaus movement favoured a minimalist, geometric look which is reflected well in lots of the modern architecture we see today, including lots of the architecture and objects that I found whilst walking around the University campus.
