An in-depth study of the seminal movement in art and architecture.
The Bauhaus Archiv/Museum of Design in Berlin holds the most important collections of Bauhaus today, housing a comprehensive inventory of documents, workshop products from all areas of design, studies sketches in the classroom, and architectural plans and models.
This book, drawn from the Archiv's extensive collection, traces this monumental movement in art and architecture via the work of its most important proponents, including Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Wassily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee.
