Design Exhibition at Georgia Tech
By Henry Bryant with info from the Georgia Tech Library
Bauhaus-educated designer Hin Bredendieck is featured in a new exhibit at the Georgia Tech Library. Grant Park and East Atlanta residents participated in the planning and design of the exhibit in collaboration with the Oldenburg State Museum in Oldenburg, Germany.
From Aurich to Atlanta, a bilingual exhibit, showcases the life and work of industrial designer Bredendieck. A 1930 graduate of the famed Bauhaus School of Design in Germany, he was a student and colleague of design luminaries such as Walter Gropius and László Moholy-Nagy. Bredendieck later founded the industrial design program at Georgia Tech. Several virtual events are also planned in conjunction with the exhibit.
The exhibit is supported by the Halle Foundation of Atlanta, the Consulate General of Germany, and the Georgia Tech School of Industrial Design. Dr. Jennifer Gerndt of East Atlanta served as liaison for the Oldenburg Museum while Kirk Henderson (East Atlanta) and Catherine Manci (Grant Park) curated the Georgia Tech exhibition and related programming. The exhibit runs through May 31 in the gallery at the S. Price Gilbert Memorial Library. Visit www.library.gatech.edu/from-aurich-to-atlanta for more information.
