Join Eva Schone and Luanne Stovall for a discussion of arguably the most influential design movement and school of the 20th century, the Bauhaus. The Bauhaus secured a firm place in history by defining a new way of living and shaping design education in the process. In the mere fourteen years of its existence between the two World Wars, the Bauhaus created and produced an impressive multidisciplinary body of work that transitioned from visionary to classic over the past century, embodying the paradigm shift from craft production to mass production.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will learn about the broader context in which the Bauhaus operated: political, technological, and humanistic
  • Attendees will learn about the mission of the Bauhaus, the people involved, and the work produced during the Bauhaus years
  • Attendees will learn about the evolution of production methods: Craft Production to Mass Production and Mass Production to Mass Customization
  • Attendees will learn about the fundamental role of the primary colors as signifiers of modernist ideals in contrast to the 21st century paradigm shift with an evolved primary color system.

Eva Schone is a licensed architect, product designer, and lecturer at the UT School of Architecture. She is currently leading the Interior Design Studio 4 for which she developed the syllabus focusing on Bauhaus teachings and work. She has served as a lecturer and guest critic at several universities and holds a Master of Architecture from the School of Architecture and Community Design at the University of South Florida. Eva is the recipient of the AIA Henry Adams Medal, the AIA Austin Emerging Professional Award, the USF SACD Distinguished Alumni Award, and the Austin Chamber of Commerce Innovative Practice Award.
Eva has over a decade of work experience in award-winning architecture practices and she completed built projects as principal architect of Eva Schone Creative Studio. As the founder and creative director of Trophyology she challenges the status quo of the award industry and has earned an international reputation for innovative design and superior craftsmanship. Her work has been published in AIA Architect and the Huffington Post.
Eva is dual citizen of Germany and the United States and her background of coming of age in East Germany informs her academic interest in the correlation between political systems and the built environment. Her graduate thesis ‘Thinking of Walls’ examined the nature of walls in broad terms, and specifically the political walls between East and West Germany, Israel and Palestine, and the USA and Mexico border. She developed an architectural response to mitigate these divisions through a travelling bridge pavilion. Eva’s special interest in the Bauhaus synthesizes her passion for design excellence and innovation, politics, art, and architecture.

Luanne Stovall has taught color workshops and classes in many locations including UT School of Architecture (Living Color, Advanced Color - Strategies and Solutions), UT College of Fine Arts (Foundation Color Modules); School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Sloan School of Business, MIT; and the Art Institute of Austin. A lecturer at UTSOA, she is currently writing A New Field Guide to Color, an interdisciplinary color model where the dots between diverse disciplines are connected. Color is positioned as fundamental communication tool and a dynamic, constantly evolving synthesis of Art + Science + Psychology + Technology + Culture.
Luanne has an MFA in painting from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Previously, she attended Miami University, Oxford Ohio, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, Maine; and the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture in NYC. Her paintings, collages, and paper cutouts are in public and private collections including the Blanton Museum of Art, Austin; Art Museum of South Texas, Corpus Christi; El Paso Museum of Art; San Antonio Museum of Art; Moakley Cancer Care Center, Boston; and the Neiman Marcus Signature Store in Boston.
