Summer series – the Bauhaus

I have been publishing on this blog for 6 months now. I’m taking some holidays, the opportunity to share or re-share some posts on themes that are dear to me. I’ll see you every 15 days during this mini-series.

Today it’s the turn of the Bauhaus, this magnificent school whose architecture I particularly like.

Before going to the great classics, here is a lesser-known site that is worth a visit: Bernau bei Berlin. A beautiful school nestled in the woods.

Now we’re heading to Dessau, without a doubt the best place in Germany to admire Bauhaus architecture. I have dedicated three posts to it and I share them here again. Count on a good day of visit, even more if you can visit the interior of the buildings.

The most emblematic: the buildings of the school founded by Gropius.

In the south of the city there is a whole residential area:

And finally the houses of the school’s teachers, including Gropius.
