Bauhaus twenty-21: An Ongoing Legacy – Photographs by Gordon Watkinson showcases 12 of the most iconic achievements of Bauhaus architecture built before 1933.

Each of the buildings is featured in conjunction with a project built in this century by a group of up-and-coming as well as internationally prominent practitioners.

Bauhaus twenty-21 illustrates the enduring philosophies of the Bauhaus in 21st century architecture. By creating a visual as well as theoretical dialogue between the timeless modernism of Bauhaus architecture and the visions of contemporary practitioners, the exhibition offers a unique perspective on Bauhaus design philosophy and its relevance in today’s society.

The exhibit illustrates the use of prefabricated housing techniques to create affordable housing, to early ideas in what is today sustainable architecture.
