“Art and technology: a new unity.”

It was with this slogan that the Bauhaus—the German art school famous for combining crafts and the fine arts—moved to Dessau in 1925. The school’s seven years in this industrial city between the Elbe and Mulde Rivers were particularly productive for its designers and architects, who created a unique ensemble of modern architecture that attracts visitors from all over the world to Dessau to this day. Many of the Bauhaus buildings in Dessau are now regarded as key works of European Modernism and some have even become UNESCO World Heritage Sites. They express the revolutionary aim of the historical Bauhaus to bring about fundamental change in society through design and architecture.

Exclusively published in co-operation with the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation and to coincide with the Bauhaus centenary in 2019, this brilliantly illustrated volume presents the Bauhaus buildings in Dessau in words and pictures and offers new perspectives on these icons of modern architecture.
