The Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung houses the world’s largest collection relating to the history of the Bauhaus. The iconic building in Klingelhöferstrasse designed by Walter Gropius is currently undergoing conversion and the addition of a new building by the architect Volker Staab. Until it reopens, the Bauhaus archive is housed in a temporary location in Berlin-Charlottenburg.
The temporary bauhaus-archiv / museum für gestaltung is located in the historic Haus Hardenberg. Built in 1955–56 by Paul Schwebes, this is one of the most important office and commercial buildings of Post-War Modernism in West Berlin. The bauhaus shop has found a place in the generous shop space on the ground floor. Historic photos and documents on the gallery give an insight into the history of the Bauhaus archive in Berlin. On a regular basis in the coming years, new exhibitions will be shown here and discussion events and workshops will be offered.
