Bauhaus in Budapest







Staatliches Bauhaus, commonly known simply as Bauhaus, was a school in Germany that combined crafts and the fine arts, and was famous for the approach to design that it publicized and taught. It operated from 1919 to 1933. At that time the German term Bauhaus, literally “house of construction” stood for “School of Building”. It became a significant architectural style in Budapest in the late 1920s through the 1940s.  Our apartment is in a Bauhaus building and our area of District XIII has the most significant examples of the style in Budapest.  While there are many “purist” Bauhaus buildings, Budapest also has many buildings of the period that  incorporate a stylized Art Nouveau and Bauhaus elements.  These photographs are of classic Bauhaus.  I love their simplicity.
