Between 1919 and 1933, the Bauhaus School, based
first in Weimar and then in Dessau, revolutionized architectural and
aesthetic concepts and practices. The buildings put up and decorated by
the school's professors (Walter Gropius, Hannes Meyer, Laszlo
Moholy-Nagy and Wassily Kandinsky) launched the Modern Movement, which
shaped much of the architecture of the 20th century.
