Show sight on map

The Bauhaus Building Dessau, or Bauhaus Dessau for short, is the former school building of the State Bauhaus in Dessau. It was designed by Walter Gropius in 1925 and built between 1925 and 1926 for the Bauhaus, which had previously been in Weimar, and for the Dessau School of Arts and Crafts. Just as in the Masters' Houses in the immediate vicinity, which were planned and built at the same time, the Bauhaus was able to realize its architectural and artistic ideas programmatically with these new buildings. The building is considered a pioneer in the development of modern architecture and is one of the most famous examples of modern architecture of the interwar period.
