The temporary bauhaus-archiv and bauhaus-shop are temporarily closed. We invite you to discover the Bauhaus from home and shop online at bauhaus-shop.de.

While the renovation and expansion of the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung continues, the temporary bauhaus-archiv in Berlin-Charlottenburg remains open to visitors. It features a varied programme that highlights the collection of the Bauhaus-Archiv and addresses contemporary issues of design, architecture and society. In the temporary, we actively engage with our visitors and the public and address topics related to the future tasks and programmes of the new museum. The temporary is a project venue where we cannot, for technical reasons, display any originals from our collection. Until the museum reopens, the bauhaus-shop can also be found at the temporary.

The temporary is situated in the listed landmark Haus Hardenberg, which was built in 1955/1956 by the architect Paul Schwebes and is considered one of the most significant office and commercial buildings of postwar modernism in West-Berlin.
