WHAT IS BAUHAUS?
Bauhaus—literally translated “construction house”—originated as a German school of the arts in the early 20th century, founded by the architect Walter Gropius.
This school school of art eventually developed into its own modern art movement characterised by its unique approach to architecture and design. Today, Bauhaus is renowned for both its unique aesthetic that combines the fine arts with arts and crafts as well as its enduring influence on modern and contemporary art.
