Dessau Bauhaus

This is the new building for the Bauhaus based in Dessau and it was during this era that there was a change of direction for the school. The building was made of the following materials ;  Steel, glass and reinforced concrete, non of the walls were painted and all of the decorative elements abolished so that decoration would not take away from the harmony of the building  or any of the art featured in the building, decoration was considered a distraction. The building consisted of geometric shapes to compliment geometric abstraction and was designed in order to be experienced in 3D.  At this time the pottery workshop was done away with and Photography was given more praise. The “wassily” chair was also created just a basic steel framed chair that looks unreal.
