The Bauhaus in Dessau

 

The new building on the edge of Dessau in which the Bauhaus continued its work as the College of Design (1926-1932) after moving from Weimar was designed by Walter Gropius. Today's "Bauhaus Dessau – Centre of Design" is a vibrant institution specialising in experimental design, research and teaching. A guided tour of the Dessau Bauhaus reveals one of the iconic buildings of classical modernism.

 

Master houses

 

The master houses, which were built to designs by Walter Gropius in 1925/6, unite the Bauhaus concepts of living and working. Today visitors can see the restored double house shared by Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky, the Muche/Schlemmer double house and the Feininger house, now home to the Kurt Weill Centre.

 

The Bauhaus buildings in both Dessau and Weimar are UNESCO world heritage sites.
