The Lonely Palette is on break until November 2019, so every Wednesday in October, a different Hub & Spoke producer will take the host's chair to present an episode of their show that Tamar is especially fond of. Enjoy this month's podcast petri dish of art, culture, history, and society, and subscribe to any and all Hub & Spoke shows at This week: Open Source with Christopher Lydon is a local conversation with global attitude. "The Bauhaus in Your House," which originally aired on 90.9 WBUR in April 2019, is an exploration of art, architecture, and design with Tamar Avishai, Peter Chermayeff, Ann Beha, and Sebastian Smee. The Bauhaus was the art school in Germany that created the look of the twentieth century. We just live in it: loving its white-box affordability, or hating its stripped, blank, glass-and-steel uniformity, the world around. It’s the IKEA look in the twenty-first century, the look of Chicago skyscrapers and now Chinese housing towers, the look of American kitchens and probably the typeface on your emails. It was the less-is-more school that made ornament very nearly a crime. It stood, and stands, for a few big ideas still hotly contested. Listen to Open Source at, or wherever you get your podcasts.
