The Bauhaus in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin. Lives, Works, Impacts
In its mere 14 years of existence, the Bauhaus gave rise to a fascination which persists until today. This book introduces the Bauhaus architects, guides us through the sites of the school’s activities and former homes of the Bauhaus members, and it portrays some of the artists. It recounts the unconventional forms of living, working and learning at the Bauhaus, and describes its creativity – from the enthusiastic period of its foundation in Weimar, to its establishment in Dessau and finally its forced closure by the Nazis, in Berlin in 1933.

Egon Eiermann hat wie kein Zweiter die deutsche Architektur der Nachkriegszeit geprägt. Transparenz, Materialgerechtigkeit, künstlerischer Anspruch und stringente Gestaltqualität bis ins kleinste Detail kennzeichnen sein reiches architektonisches Werk.
Point and Line to Plane
Point and Line to Plane, volume 9 of the Bauhausbücher series, can be seen as a continuation of Wassily Kandinsky's seminal treatise On the Spiritual in Art. Kandinsky's thesis is that different constellations of point, line and surface have different emotional effects on the viewer.
