The Dessau BauhausStreaming Video - 1999
Built in 1926, the Bauhaus at Dessau remains Walter Gropius' most important building and one of the most famous examples of twentieth-century architecture. This higher academy of the arts connected crafts and art to industrial design where artists, filmmakers and furniture designers joined teachers like Klee and Kandinski. The glass walls, angles and flat roofs were new and became a landmark for modern architecture. Gropius influenced industrial architecture in the U.S. where he died in 1969. The Bauhaus is now a World Heritage Site.
