The legendary German architect and Bauhaus founder provides an inside look at the school’s Dessau location in this facsimile edition

German architect Walter Gropius (1883–1969) founded the Staatliches Bauhaus art school in 1919 with the goal of combining form and functionality in an innovative approach to modernist design. Though short-lived, the institution’s contributions to modernist design, ranging from architecture to typography, were hugely impactful and birthed an entire generation of European artists.

In this volume, Gropius provides a comprehensive overview of the Bauhaus’ Dessau location from 1925 to 1932. With photographic documentation and preliminary sketches, Gropius details the architectural design of the new Bauhaus building and the associated Masters’ Houses. The result is a detailed depiction of the design practice associated with the Bauhaus, as well as an insight into the design of the building itself.

As part of the publisher’s ongoing Bauhausbücher series, Lars Müller has released a facsimile edition of Gropius’ text translated into English with the original design and typography.
