About Competition 

Design brief for the “Baus-Stop” design challenge looks at manifesting Bauhaus design principles on a bus stop. 

How can Bauhaus make our lives relevant and artsy while being feasibly functional? How can we as designers communicate the essence of this movement? Can this style be used to design small-scale public entities? How will it be helpful in creating successful public spaces? While the principles of the movement are universal, how can the design be made context relevant? 

Bus stops are usually engineering solutions that seldom invest themselves in reinventing their design. How can Bauhaus help us change that?

The goal is to design a bus stop that stands as an example of how Bauhaus can weigh in, in changing the public space design game. It should create a balance between its design goals and functional aspects, in a way that resonates with the movement’s ideas. The final outcome should stand as a memoir of the movement and its influences on today’s time.

OBJECTIVES

  • Ideation – The theme must be made relevant and simplified for people to understand.
  • Balance – A balance between the aesthetic and functionality must be achieved.
  • Landmark – The design must be symbolic of the Bauhaus movement and its principles.
  • Replicability – The design must be replicable across various locations around the world.
