Scarcely any other art school achieved such comprehensive world renown in 20th-century art, architecture and design as the Bauhaus, founded by Walter Gropius in 1919. In 1925, the Bauhaus moved from Weimar to Dessau, and here was given its own building with workshops, and residences for the professors, who were called “Meister” (i.e. masters). Today, the Bauhaus with these “Meisterhäuser” (i.e. masters’ houses) in Dessau-Roßlau are a UNESCO World Heritage site.
