13 Apr Google doodle celebrates 100th anniversary of Bauhaus
The Bauhaus was a lively school of ideas and a field for experimenting in the free and applied arts, design, architecture and educational methods. To celebrate the centenary of the hugely influential design school, Google created a doodle as a way show case its legacy. Featured on the search engine’s homepage, the graphic includes the word Google in rigid, boxy letters with black line drawings and a rounded “O” at the centre. Also incorporated in the doodle are blocks of yellow, green, red, blue, black and white.
Most people agree that the Bauhaus was arguably the single most influential modernist art school of the 20th century. What stood out was its approach to teaching, and to the relationship between art, society, and technology, both in Europe and in the United States long after its closure under Nazi pressure in 1933.
