Google Earth Plug-in: Bauhaus - Dessau, Germany

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


The Bauhaus, an art and architectural school, was founded in 1919 in Weimar but came to Dessau from 1925 to 1932 before moving to Berlin. Although the school was forced to close its doors when the Nazi's came to power, its ideas and philosophy are still influencing the world. The name "Bauhaus" derives from the word "bauen" meaning to build, including the idea of creating in a spiritual sense, and "haus" meaning the house or building itself. Following the war and Germany's defeat-inspired desire for a renaissance, the Bauhaus sought to define a new "style" as an international school dealing with international politics. Designed by its director, Walter Gropius, the Bauhaus remains today one of the most impressive examples of modern architecture.
