The essays collected in The ABCs of Triangle Square Circle: The Bauhaus and Design Theory trace the origins and impact of the Bauhaus, addressing modernist design theory in relation to the 19th-century kindergarten movement, and Bauhaus graphic design in relation to the ideal of a universal "language" of vision. Additional essays address psychoanalysis, fractal geometry, and Weimar culture.
