delayed history

walter gropius, the founder of bauhaus movement, designed a building to store and exhibit the collection in darmstadt. 

the plan was finished by 1960 but because of the political and local reasons, the archive had to be moved to berlin. 

gropius’s project had lots of changes due to the new location and unexpected delays—except the distinctive roof silhouette.

the museum space holds the full process and elements of the movement, including the education system, furniture, paintings and even toys.
