Bauhaus Archiv-Museum - Klingelhoferstrasse, Berlin, Germany

Walter Gropius
Date Built
Klingelhöferstraße 14 beside the Landwehrkanal
This building on Klingelhoferstrasse is home to the Bauhaus Archive.  The Senate of Berlin provided the site and the funding.  Gropius, the founder of the movement designed the building.  Apparently little of the original design remains apart from the shed roofs.

The archive houses a collection of documents, watercolours, prints and photographs, along with models and architectural plans.  Among those whose work is recognized there are Lyonel Feininger, Johannes Itten, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Werner Drewes, Gunta Stölzl and Oskar Schlemmer.
