Bauhaus style

Bauhaus style

An architectural style developed at the school of design established by Walter Gropius in 1919 in Weimar, Germany. It moved to Dessau in 1926 and closed in 1933. The term became virtually synonymous with modern teaching methods in architecture and the applied arts and with the functional aesthetics for the industrial age. It epitomized the marriage of modern design, mass production and industrial design.
