Caravan featuring design ideas arrives on the Bund
A vehicle in the Bauhaus caravan style displayed design philosophy when it stopped on the Bund in Shanghai on Aug 24.
The caravan tour was designed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Hochschule fuer Gestaltung, the first modern design college in the world.
Designed by German architect Van Bo Le Mentzel, the caravan features more than 40 Bauhaus art books. Its tour will invite scholars and designers to discuss the relationship between art, science and human ecology.
"The purpose of the tour is to spread the Bauhaus design concept. We want to get the public to understand the value and significance of design and encourage designers to rethink their position and future value to society," says Chi Wei, the founder of the +86 Design Sharing Platform.
