The Bauhaus is known and respected worldwide as the most influential school of the 20th century in the field of architecture, art and design.
In addition to buildings by famous “Bauhäusler” such as Walter Gropius and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Berlin draws a more complex picture of Classical Modernism with buildings by Erich Mendelsohn, Bruno Taut, Wassili and Hans Luckhardt and Alfons Anker. In the 1920s, outstanding examples of New Building were created here as offshoots of the nearby Bauhaus in Dessau. Both the six UNESCO listed housing estates and Le Corbusier’s “housing machine” enrich the palette of modern architecture in Berlin.
