The Dessau Summer School of Architecture develops its thematic focus from the relevance of Bauhaus Dessau in the history of architecture.

Parts of the course are conducted within Bauhaus Dessau. Participants from different nations enter into an architectural dialogue reviewing modernity.

The components of the programme place current developments in architecture and design in relation to the history of modernity and its context.

Starting with a workshop in cooperation with the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation on the mutual relations between education and design in the Bauhaus school, the studio focuses especially on one key topic of Bauhaus – the cultural transfer.

Within architectural building typology, it is not just museums and theatres that serve the purpose of cultural transfer.

Which role does architecture take in this context? How does materiality contribute to its details and its function? Do designers anticipate typical user behaviour within the design process, or is the user an integral part of this process?

Learning about Germany is part of studying at Anhalt University. Students take a language class to practice their German skills and take part in excursions as part of the Architecture and Society course and art class.

Participants earn 12 ECTS for the course. Contact [email protected] to learn more.
