15 Eye Candy Photos That Prove Bauhaus Is Still The King Of Design

The Nazis tried to kill it, but 100 years after its birth, the Bauhaus art movement is alive and well, and here are pictures to prove it.

It's 2019, and if there's anything we should celebrate is that this year will be the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Bauhaus school, a revolutionary architecture movement spanning art and community that gave us the best motto of all time: less is more. @bauhaus.movementThe name is a combination of the German words for building (bau) and house (haus), but it's not meant to be exclusively about architecture.@bauhaus.movement

The history of the Bauhaus school is quite interesting, not least because it ended abruptly, something rarely said about any art movement. And the reason the school in Berlin closed abruptly in 1933 was because of the rise of the Nazi party in Germany, which sought to persecute Bauhaus masters, accusing them of being the center of communist intellectualism.

Check out this building by Walter Gropius.

Many of the buildings actually still stand, while others have been rebuilt, like the German Pavillion in Barcelona (renamed as Barcelona Pavillion), designed for the World Exposition by Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe, one of the major figures behind the art movement.

The art school's real legacy, however, is the number of buildings it inspired. Like this one in Paris, built in the same neighborhood where Le Corbusier built many of his most famous houses.

This sculpture in Mexico City was built by Austrian Herbet Bayer for the 1968 Summer Olympics, and it's an interesting landmark in what became known as the Friendship Route, an open space in and around major arteries that features modern sculptures. One of them is Bayer's "Articulated Walls" (which has a twin in Denver).
