A comprehensive collection of
photographs, records, notebooks, drawings, prints, manuscripts, and other materials
documenting student coursework, assignments, projects, and activities at the Bauhaus (ca.
1919-1933). Includes some work by Bauhaus professors.
The Bauhaus was founded in 1919 by the architect Walter Gropius as a school of art,
architecture, crafts, and theater, with the focus of instruction on the unity of art and
technology. Gropius led the Bauhaus until 1928, when he named Hannes Meyer as his successor.
Mies van der Rohe replaced Meyer in 1930. The Bauhaus began in Weimar, moved to Dessau in
1925, and closed in 1932. Attempts to revive the school were made in Berlin in 1933 and
Chicago in 1937.
