Bauhaus

The Bauhaus School, was an institution blessed with a multidisciplinary approach to arts eduction, primarily rooted in architecture. Founded by Walter Gropius the school’s blessings were matched only by the political upheavals it found itself in. Sailing on a sea change of arts experimentation following the fall of the German Monarchy the school was known for innovation and the founding of German Modernism. The school represented a state-sponsored initiative to merge the craft arts traditions with modern technology.
