THE ART OF JOINING / Bauhaus Paperback 23 by Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau

「BAUHAUS PAPERBACK」シリーズ第23作。モダニズム建築家のコンラッド・ワックスマン(Konrad Wachsmann)は、建築を産業化し、これによって建築の転換の可能性を促進したという現代建築家においても異例の役割を果たした。第二次世界大戦の影でひっそりと発明されたワックスマンの「ユニバーサル・ジョイント」は、後に1941年にアメリカでヴァルター・グロピウス(Walter Gropius)と共同で開発したパネルシステムの組み立て住宅に応用された。そしてこれがバウハウス・デッサウ校の大学院のプログラム「Bauhaus Lab 2018」の出発点となった。本書は、この金属のコネクターとして結実した戦後ヨーロッパにおけるモダニズムの歴史的文脈とディスコースを精査し、「ユニバーサル・ジョイント」にまつわる建築のディスコースの現代との関連性を示した。

Konrad Wachsmann played an exceptional role among modern architects in helping to industrialize architecture and fostering the potential this contained for an architectural turn. Wachsmann’s universal wedge connector, invented in the shadow of World War II and applied in the General Panel System in collaboration with Walter Gropius in the US in 1941, was the point of departure for the Bauhaus Lab 2018. The postgraduate program investigated the historical context and the discourses of transatlantic post-war modernism that come together in the metal connector, while also reflecting on the contemporary relevance of the architectural discourse surrounding the “universal connector”.
