Bauhaus Dessau

The Bauhaus, founded in 1919 in Weimar , became immediately the most famous art, design and architecture school in Germany. For political reasons it moved in 1925  from Weimar to Dessau. In only 13-month construction time the key work of the modern age - the Bauhaus Dessau was built after plans of Walter Gropius. Since 1996 it belongs to the UNESCO world heritage.

Gropius said: " One must walk all around this construction to grasp its physicalness and the function of his components ". The buildings form a plastically jointed arrangement with interdependent, different construction bodies. Their functions are already to be recognised from the outside. The school rooms, the studio house and the workshops are connected by a 2-storied bridge with each other. Here were the construction office of Gropius and administrative rooms. Residential studios and kitchen were to be found in the studio building. Assembly hall and stage were accommodated in the low building between studio house and workshop tract. In 1932 Bauhaus was closed by the National Socialists.
