Google Arts and Culture's Latest Online Exhibition Celebrates the Enduring Influence of the Bauhaus

The Bauhaus centennial is coming to an end but the iconic design school’s influence isn’t going anywhere. Google Arts & Culture has just released a comprehensive online exhibition that explores the history of the movement and all the ways in which “traces” of its spirit still influence design today. Aptly titled Bauhaus Everywhere, the platform brings the school to life for anyone with an internet connection.

The collection was developed in collaboration with Bauhaus Dessau, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the IIT Institute of Design, among others. Altogether the project has digitized over 10,000 objects, 400 artworks and created several virtual tours of iconic buildings.

There’s a series of animated videos covering Bauhaus basics and photo essays answering questions like “What Was It Like To Study In the Coolest School Around?” and “How to Decorate your House, Bauhaus-Style.” You can explore 3D models of unbuilt projects or how the Bauhaus influence reached countries like Japan, India, and Brazil.

All that is merely scratching the surface, dive into the site at your leisure here.
