The Bauhaus, the legendary school in Dessau, Germany, transformed architecture and design around the world. This book broke new ground when first published in 1991 by introducing psychoanalysis, geometry, early childhood education, and popular culture into the standard political history of the Bauhaus.
The ABC's of Triangle, Square, Circle also introduced two young designers, Ellen Lupton and J. Abbott Miller, whose multidisciplinary approach changed the field of design writing and research. With a new preface by Lupton and Miller, this collection of visually and intellectually stimulating essays is a must-read for educators and students.
" was the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Bauhaus school of design in Weimar, Germany. Much more than an architectural style, the school promoted an educational theory and a strict design language. This is a reissue of a 1991 book, part design history, part playful typographic investigation into the Bauhaus process. This book will appeal to anyone particularly interested in the school's approach to graphic design, and its enduring influence."
