on Destination Germany
Since the reunification of Germany 25 years ago, fans of pioneering design have been able to visit a new destination: Dessau, the ‘capital’ of Bauhaus. The art school established by Walter Gropius has left its mark here as the avant-garde of classic modernism – in the shape of one museum and several masters’ houses.
Other Bauhaus museums and housing estates in Weimar (the birthplace of Bauhaus), Berlin and Stuttgart demonstrate just why the trademark cuboid functionality still serves as a guiding principle for designers all over the world.
