DAS BAUHAUSGEBÄUDE IN DESSAU / Bauhaus Paperback 5 by Christin Irrgang, Ingolf Kern, Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau [GERMAN EDITION]

「BAUHAUS PAPERBACK」シリーズ第5作。本書のテーマはバウハウス・デッサウ校。ヴァルター・グロピウス(Walter Gropius)が設計し1926年に建設されたバウハウス・デッサウ校は、デザインと教育の革命を建物という形で宣言している。今日この建物は「白のモダニズム」の究極のシンボルとして世界中で認められているが、この建物が建築のスタイルに与え続けている影響力はいったいどこから来ているのか。グロピウスは透過性、軽さ、色を使ってこのような効果をどうやって作り出したのか。建物はどのように使われていたのか、また完成してから数十年の間に使われ方はどのように変わったのだろうか。「建築ガイド」とも言える本書は簡潔な章で構成されており、この有名な建物の特徴の一つであるカーテンウォールの裏を覗き、ほぼ文字通りそのファサードの下にあるものを精査し、見過ごされがちな側面を明らかにする。バウハウス・デッサウ校とその歴史を巡るツアーに参加し、バウハウス再発見の旅の途中でこれらの建物に立ち寄っているような気分にさせてくれる一冊。ベルリンに拠点を置くグラフィックアーティスト、アイケ・ケーニヒ(Eike König)がデザインした『The Bauhaus paperback』シリーズはバウハウスの様々な建物の実用的なガイドブックとして小さくて持ち運びやすくなっている。

The Bauhaus building in Dessau, designed by Walter Gropius and built in 1926, is the built manifestation of a revolution in design and education. Today, it is accepted worldwide as the ultimate symbol of »white modernism«. But what is it that gives it its lasting stylistic influence? How is Gropius’ play with transparency, lightness and colour achieved? How was the building used, and how has it changed over the decades since its inauguration? This architectural guide looks behind the distinctive curtain wall, quite literally examines what lies beneath the building‘s facade and reveals frequently overlooked facets of this illustrious building. In concise chapters, the book takes the reader on a tour of the Bauhaus building and its history and thereby prompts an invitation ot visit on a journey of rediscovery. The small and handy books, designed by the Berlin-based graphic designer Eike König, accompany the exhibitions and are also intended as practical guidebooks for the Bauhaus buildings.
