PROGRAM

Belmont in Paris, Berlin, and the Bauhaus: A Design Exploration

Berlin is a thriving creative hub built over centuries around the River Spree. Home to nearly 3.5 million people, it is an energetic place with an electric artistic energy constantly causing growth and change throughout the city. Paris offers some of the world’s richest architectural history and most stunning sites. Beauty abounds, with design details greeting you each step of your day. From fresh baguettes and croissants at every boulangerie, to Gothic cathedrals and romantic tree-lined avenues, Paris encompasses a complete design experience with a vibrant life on the street, only becoming of “The City of Lights.” Experience the social and built environments of these cities, and examine the great design impact of the Bauhaus with Professors Eliot, Moore, and Jacobson.
