An exhibition of Photographs by Jean Molitor celebrating the 102nd year of the Bauhaus School, and a self-guided tour to UVic buildings showing the influence of the Bauhaus.

Bauhaus is often understood as an expression of high style, and it is undeniable that some of the most iconic and influential buildings of the 20th centrury were created by the Bauhaus.

Prior to the Bauhaus (and allied design movements), most working class housing conditions were unlivable by current standards. Could the Bauhaus teach us anything about designing solutions to contemporary challenges, such as homelessness, climate change, and inclusive governance?
