2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus Foundation, a school founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar and later transferred to Dessau in 1925 and finally closed in 1933 in Berlin under Nazi pressure. Although it lasted only 14 years, the school was a milestone in the history of arts and architecture, and is recognized and used as an inspiration to this day.
The term Bauhaus literally means “building house”, which is interpreted as the School of Construction, but despite the name and its founder being an architect, the school did not have an architecture department in its early years.
It was founded with the idea of encompassing all arts, including architecture, and shortly thereafter became one of the greatest influences on design and architecture in history.
