art:berlin - In the Footsteps of the Bauhaus in Berlin - Bus Tour
You won't get to the root of the Bauhaus idea if you only search the Berlin cityscape for famous exceptional works. Without a doubt, a visit to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's Lemke House (1933) in Hohenschönhausen is always worthwhile, and we will gladly relieve you of the long journey. But it is precisely the way there that offers many opportunities to talk about Bauhaus influences in industry, housing culture or traffic development, or to actually look at the models such as Peter Behrens' Turbine Hall from the street side. If, on the other hand, we follow the idea that it was only serial industrial production that provided cheap mass-produced goods for everyone, perhaps the architectural experiments in housing construction such as those by Walter Gropius in Lichterfelde, Anton Brenner in Steglitz or the Luckhardt & Anker office in Dahlem become more interesting. When an art theorist and pedagogue of the Weimar Bauhaus like Johannes Itten dedicates his colour concept to the better sale of chocolate products in Wilmersdorf, one is still amazed in the shop today at the unfaded effect of concentrated form design.
