profile

The Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung studies and presents the history and influence of the Bauhaus, the twentieth century’s most important college of architecture, design and art. Over the course of the decades the Bauhaus-Archiv has built up the world’s largest collection of materials on the subject. To be able to present the collection more comprehensively, the Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin will receive a new building on the occasion of the centenary of the Bauhaus's founding.

Due to the start of construction work our museum building at Klingelhöferstraße is now closed. In the meantime, we welcome you at the temporary bauhaus-archiv in Berlin-Charlottenburg.
