The Bauhaus-Archiv Museum of Design

Arguably one of the most influential schools of design in the 20th century, the Bauhaus movement began in 1919 with its dramatic manifesto penned by Walter Gropius, who stated, "The ultimate aim of all creative activity is a building!" Keeping the legacy of this powerful ideology alive is the Bauhaus-Archiv Museum of Design, founded in 1960, and housed in a building designed by Walter Gropius in Berlin. For persons seeking to learn more about the movement, the Bauhaus 1919-1933 section of the site contains brief essays discussing their work in the different plastic arts, including architecture, photography, and art. While the site doesn't have a searchable archive of the museums collections, there is a general overview of their holdings for persons interested in traveling to Germany to do research. Overall, the site offers a nice overview to the ideas espoused by the Bauhaus school, along with providing details about the museum and its mission.
