AIADO Capstone 2021 Revised Research Board

7 Architectural Projects. Senior students from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Class of 2021, responded to the Bauhaus Campus 2021 competition organized by ARKITEKTURO. The AIADO 4900 Capstone students (Bella Chen, Chuck Chong, Bella Cosentino, Joslin-Rene Degrate, Venna Huang, Sarie Nohara, Pierre Pi, John Tang, Yifei Yao, Keyi Zhang) have been thinking, drawing and making, from all corners of the world, their own visions for the architecture and design school of the future.

Based on their personal experience and thorough research, and using the brief for the international student design competition to redesign the Bauhaus School building in Dessau, Germany, students have devised their own program and architectural design to respond to the hypothetical needs of a new forward thinking art and design learning institution.
