The MIT Press celebrates #Bauhaus100

2019 marks the centenary of the Bauhaus, an icon of modernism. Celebrated for the elegant austerity of its designs, the Bauhaus is among the most influential movements in the history of twentieth-century art, architecture, and design.

The MIT Press is one of the leading publishers of Bauhaus books and we proudly extend the legacy of the Bauhaus—from the foundational books that we have and will publish to our legendary colophon, a branding device created by Muriel Cooper that required no words and said exactly and only what it needed to say, without explanation or translation.

Throughout the anniversary year, events, exhibitions, and publications around the world will mark the significance and relevance of the Bauhaus experiment and we are delighted to join the festivities in several ways:

  • We have curated a list of our Bauhaus books—past, present, and future—for those seeking authoritative, scholarly resources on the school and its continued relevance in the 21st century.
