About Shapeshift

The inaugural Shapeshift design festival in 2019 celebrated Illinois Institute of Technology’s—and Chicago’s—legendary, yet largely unknown, Bauhaus heritage on the occasion of the Bauhaus centenary. Through exhibitions, tours, and other events in partnership with Expo Chicago, the Chicago Architecture Biennale, and the College of Architecture, the festival engaged more than 5,000 people and reached more than 50,000.
