Biographical Note

The Institute of Design was established in 1939 by Laszlo Moholy-Nagy as The School of Design in Chicago. Moholy-Nagy had come to Chicago in 1937 at the request of the Association of Arts and Industries to head their new design school, The New Bauhaus: American School of Design. The New Bauhaus took much of its teaching method and ideology from Moholy-Nagy's training in the German Bauhaus in Weimar, founded by Walter Gropius in 1919. After financial troubles forced a 1938 closure of the New Bauhaus, many of its students and faculty joined Moholy-Nagy's School of Design. In 1944 the School of Design as renamed the Institute of Design in Chicago, and in 1949 jointed with IIT. As of 2015 the Institute of Design offers graduate and post graduate training in design, design planning, photography, and design research.
