Gonzalez Hinz Zabala’s design for new Bauhaus Museum Dessau

The new Bauhaus Museum Dessau links an iconographic heritage (“Less is More“) with a manifesto of contemporary culture (“The Age of Less“). A bridge structure in which the collection will be presented, hovering as a closed body over a permeable public space for temporary exhibitions, events and workshops.

The glass covered and protected volume allows the continuity of the Bauhaus not only as part of the museum activities but also as part of the city of Dessau. On the one hand, the volume includes an urban space, on the other hand, its transparency allows an interaction between street and museum, between city and park.

The project offers playful contrasts as heaviness and lightness, opacity and transparency, system and flexibility, order and spontaneity. The museum is an instrument and a catalyst for expressing activity and productivity, creativity and social interaction that altogether corresponds with the idea of the Bauhaus.
