The ABC's of Triangle, Square, Circle: The Bauhaus and Design Theory


The Bauhaus, the legendary school in Dessau, Germany, transformed architecture and design around the world.

This book broke new ground when first published in 1991 by introducing psychoanalysis, geometry, early childhood education, and popular culture into the standard political history of the Bauhaus.

The ABC's of Triangle, Square, Circle also introduced two young designers, Ellen Lupton and J. Abbott Miller, whose multidisciplinary approach changed the field of design writing and research.

With a new preface by Lupton and Miller, this collection of visually and intellectually stimulating essays is a must-read for educators and students.

Contributors include Mike Mills, Tori Egherman, Julia Reinhard Lupton, Kenneth Reinhard, and Alan Wolf
