From 1919 to 1933, in Weimar, Dessau and then Berlin, the Bauhaus (literally, "house of construction") was much more than just a professional school of a new genre--it was a modern Utopia. Painters, teaching specialists, architects, urban planners, artisans, engineers, actors, musicians, photographers and designers worked together there on a new concept of everyday life. An experimental style became dominant--bare, functional and scrupulously clear--the style of the 20th century.
