Design/Architecture Exhibitions/Talks

IMG_7687

Each of us carries a room within ourselves, waiting to be furnished and peopled, and if you listen closely, you may need to silence everything in your own room, you can hear the sounds of that other room inside your head.

– Susan Sontag

Design and Architecture Exhibitions and Discussions are an integral part of Warsaw Bauhaus’s idea of the ideal. We hope to have a chance to present to the public works by Eileen Gray, Charlotte Perriand, Aino and Alvar Aalto, Buckminster Fuller, Charles and Ray Eames, Maciej Nowicki and Stanislawa Sandecka, and others. We will have open house hours on special Saturdays. For more information contact us HERE.

 

 

We need utilities.

Air, water, energy

Travel and communication means

Food and shelter.

We have no need for imaginary mountain ranges

Between separate nations.

We can make tunnels through the real ones.

Nor do we have any need for the continuing division of people

Into those who have what they need

And those who don’t.

Both Fuller and Marshal McLuhan

Knew, furthermore

That work is now obsolete.

We have invented machines to do it for us.

Now that we have no need to do anything

What shall we do?

Looking at Fuller’s geodesic world map
We see that the Earth is a single island, Oahu.

We must give all the people all they need to live
In any way they wish.

Our present laws protect the rich from the poor.

If there are to be laws, we need ones that
Begin with the acceptance of poverty as a way of life.

We must make the world safe for poverty
Without dependence on government.

– John Cage
