Designing For Precarious Citizens: Building On The Bauhaus Legacy
|J. Van Den Eijnde ; J. Konijn Eds.
Inspired by the 2019 Bauhaus centennial, ‘Designing for Precarious Citizens’ links the ideals of the Bauhaus to research by designers and students on the living and housing conditions of vulnerable groups in society today. For the Bauhaus, technology was a tool for reducing the vulnerability of working-class citizens, but in modern society it often prevents people from being able to make decisions about their own future. The various design projects featured here follow on the ideas of architect Johan Niegeman, one of the few Dutch educators at the Bauhaus. The book also includes key research by designers Frank Kolkman, Giuditta Vendrame, and Klasien van de Zandschulp.
