Haus am Horn
Bauhaus Architecture in Weimar

 Klassik Stiftung Weimar (Ed.)
Anke Blümm, Martina Ullrich

The Haus Am Horn, built in 1923 on the occasion of the first Bauhaus exhibition, is the first and only Bauhaus architecture preserved in Weimar. The Bauhaus presented itself to the public for the first time with this experimental building. In close cooperation, all Bauhaus workshops fully equipped it with specially designed furniture, textiles, lights and state-of-the-art household appliances. Every detail of the house was an answer to the many questions about future living conditions that are still relevant today. From 1924 to the 1990s, the house was inhabited, changed and expanded, so that little of the interior has been preserved. The compact overview presents the eventful history of this house, which can be visited as an accessible monument from 2019.
