The Bauhaus Archive / Museum of Design in Berlin is concerned with the research and presentation of the history and impact of the Bauhaus (1919-1933), the most important school of architecture, design, and art of the 20th century.
It is the most complete existing collection focused on the history of the school and all aspects of its work and is accessible to all. The museum building is a late work of Walter Gropius, the founder of the Bauhaus. The building was planned in 1964 for Darmstadt and was built 1976-79 in modified form in Berlin. Today, its characteristic silhouette is one of Berlin's landmarks.
