dc.descriptionWorkshop wing, south elevation, east side; In 1925 the Bauhaus moved from Weimar to Dessau, occupying temporary accommodation while the new school and staff housing were being built to designs by Gropius. The Bauhaus buildings (1925-1926) are his major works; his audacious use of glass as hanging, transparent planes, the clear spatial and functional organization of the whole and overall synthesis of architecture, interior design, furniture and equipment made these buildings a paradigm of the Modern Movement. They were not wholly a construction of machine-made parts, but they were totally expressive of the machine aesthetic--an appropriate symbol of the Bauhaus commitment to a unique synthesis of art and industry and of itself, as both educational institution and social microcosm.
