Can Design Change Society? Projekt Bauhaus (Arch +)

Arch+ Journal for Architecture and Urbanism & Birkhaüser, 2019
In 2019 it will be the hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus. Prompted by this occasion, with “project bauhaus” ARCH+ has undertaken a critical appraisal of the Bauhaus ideas: working for several years, an international group of experts from a wide range of disciplines has investigated the socio-political relevance and emancipatory potential of the Bauhaus historically, for today, and for the future.
How can design still become effective as a political project? What are the possibilities and problems encountered by universal design in the age of globalization? Can the emancipatory potential of technology still be activated in a digitalized world?
The answers to these questions are published here for the first time for an international readership.
