The Bauhaus building is regarded as a seminal work of European modernism. In the building the principles of functionalism are combined with a remarkable architectonic quality for which then pioneering materials like glass and reinforced concrete were used. Built as an institute of higher education, the building is a manifestation of the Bauhaus’ ideas. Beyond the architectonic significance with its radical new approaches, the site has a historically unique impact. Here, essential contributions were made to the revolutionary renewal of art, design and architecture in the twentieth century. The building is currently the seat of the #Bauhaus #Dessau #Foundation.
