Learn, Create, Collaborate -- Bauhaus Style!

        MLK rendering - rooftop

Finding the Bauhaus in the Public Library is a new public program series celebrating the 100th anniversary of the German Bauhaus school (1919-1933) and the modernization of D.C.'s own landmark, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library -- designed by the last director of the Bauhaus, Mies van der Rohe.

Beginning in fall 2019, join us to learn how a radical design school influenced everything from the chairs we sit on to the architecture of buildings around the world + create with makers of all kinds in the Library + collaborate as we imagine how Bauhaus ideas of design, social purpose and hands-on learning might serve our city today.

Please join us for the public kickoff off this exciting program, followed by exhibits, workshops, screenings and more at the Goethe-Institute, library locations, and partner sites next year. Presented in partnership with the Goethe-Institut, Gensler, AIA | DC, AIGA and the National Building Museum.
