Heike Hanada, Bauhaus Museum in Weimar (Germany)

 
A work of the German architect Heike Hanada, this new museum opens in time for the centenary of the Bauhaus, founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919. With its clear-cut geometry, the five-floor concrete volumes presents horizontal grooves on the facades, along with embedded LED strips that light up the building at night, accentuating the simple lines of the monolith.

Located between the city center and Schwanseepark, the museum has 2,000 square meters of galleries in which to display close to 1,000 art pieces of the Bauhaus. The visitor’s journey through the school’s history starts on the first floor with spaces focused on its beginnings in Weimar. Other halls explain how Bauhaus ideas were implemented or throw light on the school’s different phases under its three directors: Walter Gropius, Hannes Meyer, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
