my other enterprise blkHaUS studios, is a chicago based, socially-focused design studio founded in 2016 and dedicated to using design as an agent of change to uplift and transform marginal communities. we design objects and spaces, produce small architecture projects and public art, and curate community-based art and design exhibitions and events. the name blkHaUS is inspired by the bauhaus, a german school of architecture and applied arts founded in 1919 on experimental principles of functionalism and truth in materials during a time when african aesthetics contributed to the development of modernism. our aesthetic is an integration of our heritage as americans of african descent and our training in modernist design principles.
