Industrial Design founder exhibit opens March 22

Event teaser for Hin Bredendieck

From Aurich to Atlanta, a new bilingual exhibition at the Georgia Tech Library, showcases the life and work of Bauhaus-educated designer Hin Bredendieck in both English and his native German. The physical exhibition runs from March 22 through May 31 in the Library's gallery space on the first floor. Additionally, three virtual events are planned for April.

A 1930 graduate of the famed Bauhaus School of Design in Germany, Bredendieck was a student and colleague of design luminaries such as Walter Gropius, Paul Klee, and László Moholy-Nagy.

Bredendieck emigrated to the United States in 1937 to escape the political turmoil of pre-war Germany. With his fellow Bauhaus emigres, he brought the Bauhaus design sense and educational methods to America, teaching first at the new Institute of Design in Chicago, and later founding the department of industrial design at Georgia Tech.
