Bauhaus Building, Dessau

The Bauhaus building in Dessau, with its straight-lined structure and its sleek facades, hardly shows its age of 90 years! No wonder, it had essential impact on modern architecture. Designed by Walter Gropius, built in 1926, it housed the Bauhaus art school, and the likes of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Marcel Breuer and Wassily Kandinsky worked here as professors.
