Johannes Warda (Ed.)
New Approaches to Architecture and Design Theory
The ever new preoccupation with the avant-garde movements of the 20th century is an integral part of the theoretical discourse of architecture, art and design. The authors of this volume take the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus as an occasion for a critical revision of its pedagogical concepts, gender policy and design theoretical implications. Finally, the contributions open up new perspectives on the increasingly hybridising fields of the design disciplines between virtual environments, the aesthetics of sustainable design, biotechnology and the question of a postcolonial ethic.
Johannes Warda currently holds a lectureship in history and theory of architecture at Erfurt University of Applied Sciences. He is affiliated with the Bauhaus-Institut für Geschichte und Theorie der Architektur und Planung at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. His research focus includes the history and theory of the design disciplines and preservation, sustainability and materiality.
