Bauhaus University Weimar
Originally established in 1860 as The Great Ducal Saxon Art School, the Bauhaus University Weimar is not only a distinguished historic center of learning, but also home to two important historic buildings. One of these is the Van-de-Velde Building, which is now a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. However, like the Bauhaus.Atelier, it was altered and reconstructed at various points during the 20th century. In preparation for the University’s 150th anniversary in 2010, a restoration project was launched to return these two buildings to their original historical layout and appearance.
