We are in the planning of an Urban Safari in Berlin and Dessau – a larger group of architects will be coming to Berlin later this month. We are arranging and hosting the three day tour with Bauhaus as the overall theme. Celebrating – like more or less the rest of the world – the 100 year anniversary of the birth of the Bauhaus movement.
We’ll be going to Dessau, to check out the Bauhaus Building that housed the Bauhaus school there from 1926 to 1932, and be on a guided tour in the Masters’ Houses. The group will also pay visit to the total new Bauhaus Museum Dessau (opening September 8th). When back in Berlin, we will see the exhibition ‘Original Bauhaus’ in Berlinische Gallerie, visit the Mies van der Rohe Haus, check out the Onkel Toms Hütte area, where several Bauhaus houses are build, go to exhibitions like ‘Bauhaus and modernism in Berlin and Tel Aviv’ – and a lot more – and of course talk, eat, drink, discuss and hopefully be inspired a lot.
