Bauhaus-Universität Weimar

The buildings of the former art school and the former arts and crafts school in Weimar have been UNESCO World Heritage sites as Bauhaus sites since 1996. Both buildings were designed by the Belgian architect and designer Henry van de Velde and built according to his plans between 1904 and 1911. As the initiator and first director of the School of Applied Arts, Van de Velde himself was an important pioneer of the Bauhaus, which developed from the ideas of the Bauhaus Manifesto into a school of design in these buildings from 1919 to 1925.
