Who or what is AADA ?

In German the Bauhaus Movement emerged from an art school named The Bauhaus school; It had a profound impact on the development of Design and Architecture in the twentieth century. It was truly avant-garde in it’s techniques and ideas. Its practice spread through Europe and made a major impact in the US, introducing the world to the amazing sky scrappers.

Its truly hard to imagine that the Bauhaus school, was forced to shut its doors in only 14 years of its existance.

The Legacy that it left is a movement in architecture and design that put Germany on the design map forever.

The African Automotive Design Association or "AADA", defines its self as a community / group / assembly, of Automotive designers, Artists, Architects, craft persons, students and enthusiasts, who seek to promote Africa's rich culture and heritage through the study of Automotive design.

AADA is the first African Automotive design association of its kind.

AADA has a philosophy it employs and reads as follows:

" WE NEED A CAR THAT LOOKS, FEELS AND BREATH AFRICA"

AADA wants to influence the Automotive Design industry by introducing a brand new design language / style / identity / movement that is truly African.

The Bauhaus School is a major influence to the formation of the AADA.

The power of the internet has and will continue to provide a platform for the AADA to present its progressive findings and developments to the world.
