The Bauhaus school was founded in 1919 by architect Walter Gropius in Weimar, Germany as a college of design, before moving in 1925 to its especially designed home in Dessau, created by Gropius himself. The school’s progressive teachings sought to unite art and production, taking on different shifts under each architect-director of the school – Gropius 1919-28, Hannes Meyer 1928-30, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe 1930-33. The school closed down in 1933, after pressure from the Nazi regime, yet its ideas continued to spread across the world.
