Bauhaus Berlin

After the closure of the Bauhaus in Dessau in September 1932, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe organized the move to Berlin-Steglitz in 1933. An old telephone factory served as the school building, into which all the workshops were taken. Due to the growing radical-political powers, everyday school life could only be continued to a limited extent. In April 1933, after a raid by the police and the SA, all classrooms were closed. On 20 July 1933 Ludwig Mies van der Rohe decided to dissolve the Bauhaus. Many of the teachers and students emigrated. Thereby contributing to the global dissemination of the Bauhaus teachings.
