Bauhaus and its sites in Weimar and Dessau

The Bauhaus sites in Weimar and Dessau are the legacy of this famous school of architecture. One of the very first colleges of design, Bauhaus brought together the leading artists and architects of its time, including Paul Klee, Vassily Kandinsky and Lyonel Feininger. Their design concepts united art and technology and broke new ground in a modern industrial culture. Bauhaus opened in Weimar in 1919, relocating to Dessau in 1925. The "Am Horn" house in Weimar exemplifies this unique architectural style. Designed by Georg Muches, it was built in 1923 to illustrate the key Bauhaus concepts. The masters houses in Dessau meanwhile, epitomise the Bauhaus style with their cuboid design.
