The paper discusses the goals of the Bauhaus school and its controversial approach to education. The paper describes how the Nazi party was against the Bauhaus all throughout the 1920s and eventually made the school close, but, the Nazi party could not erase the important work that the Bauhaus artists had done. The paper asserts that the Bauhaus movement has been one of the most influential factors on the world of design and architecture.

From the Paper:

"The Bauhaus movement began at a controversial new school of arts and crafts established in the German city Weimar in 1902 and designed by a Belgian artist named Henry van de Velde. The Bauhaus is one of the first colleges of design in the world. There was already in existence another art school that had been founded in 1860 - also very controversial. In 1919, the architect Walter Gropius, a demobilized World War I officer, combined the two schools - Weimar Academy of Arts and the Weimar School of Arts and Crafts - into the Staatliches Bauhaus. This movement - a movement of new political and social ideas - would soon spread around the world. Weimar was an appropriate place for the school since on November 9th of 1918 it was the location for the writing of the new constitution of the new Republic that had just been proclaimed by the Social Democrats."
