Tra teoria e pratica: la didattica del design nella Scuola di Cole, nel Bauhaus e nella HfG

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The task of Universities is the educating minds to con- tribute to society’s cultural development. In recent times, however, in Italy we are experiencing a gap between what is studied at University and what happens in the business world. To demonstrate how education (and also research) must be linked to the business world, I will highlight the work of three institutions that have marked fundamental milestones in design history: the Government School of London, founded by Henry Cole in the nineteenth centu- ry, the Bauhaus and the Hochschule für Gestaltung of Ulm. The result is a close and foreseeing link between ed- ucation, experimentation and the business world in these excellence institutions; making possible important experi- ences that underlie design. In a nutshell, in design studies, deep entwinement between theory and practice is not merely a necessity but the essence of design itself.
