|Author:||Wolfgang Pehnt, Werner Durth|
Can the Bauhaus only be found in Berlin, Dessau, or Weimar? No way! There are outstanding Bauhaus and modernist sites all over Germany-trailblazing architecture that has left a lasting mark on our understanding of life, work, education, and living. Through more than 100 structures, most of which are open to tourism, this volume makes it possible to experience the historical and architectural vestiges of the "New Architecture" movement. Besides the famous buildings, the book presents insider tips for sites to visit throughout Germany, along with a wealth of visual material, essays, and practical advice. This book is an invitation to rediscover twentieth-century architecture and track its enduring developments. The leading Bauhaus institutions in Germany have been working together as BAUHAUS KOOPERATION BERLIN DESSAU WEIMAR. They include the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung, Berlin; the Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau; and the Klassik Stiftung Weimar.
