CDR-1361: SR Set: The Bauhaus, 1919-1933

Industrialization across Europe in the mid 19th century resulted in a growing sense among many that mass-production and artistic expression could go hand in hand. An enormous influx of workers into cities necessitated large-scale housing projects at the beginning of the 20th century. Peter Behrens' 1907 AEG building demonstrated that art and industrial design--using concrete and steel--could very well generate artistic expression. Interrupted by World War I, Gropius in 1919 founded the Bauhaus in Weimar in the hope of reconciling fine arts and applied arts. His style of functional building was reflected in the many workers housing projects that Bruno Taut, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and others built in Berlin, Stuttgart and other metropolises. Hans Meyer's leadership (1928-30) resulted in important commissions and financial gain and his emphasis on mathematical accuracy may well have meant the beginning of pre-fabricated architectural components. Increasingly political difficulties intervened until finally the Dessau Bauhaus closed in 1930. Mies van der Rohe attempted to re-open the School in Berlin in 1932 but after only ten months Nazi politics and pressure resulted in the closure of the Bauhaus but not in the International style.
