Bauhaus Museum in Weimar

Construction site of the Bauhaus Museum in Weimar

I love to visit construction sites of museums. They help to understand how the interior structure of the exhibition building is designed. With curiosity and blue protective coatings on my shoes, I enter the shell construction of the Bauhaus Museum in Weimar. Its opening is scheduled for April 2019. [German]

Employment Office (1929)

Employment office by Walter Gropius in Dessau-Roßlau

Walter Gropius planned this building in the years 1928/29. Its former function as an employment office can still be read by a fading inscription (“Amt für Arbeit”). The building is an impressive example of how to align architecture to a process – in this case looking after job seekers. [German]
