1905 – 1906
Architect: Henry van de Velde
Geschwister-Scholl-Straße 7, Weimar
The arts and crafts school building consists of two wings arranged in an angle.
The east wing had already been built in 1905 for the Weimar Sculpture School with the studio of the sculptor Adolf Brütt.
The south wing was added to the existing east wing in 1906 for the School of Applied Arts and Henry van de Velde’s studio.
The School of Arts and Crafts was built in the period between the two construction phases of the art school Weimar opposite.
The angular building corresponds in the articulation of the wall pillars and the visible steel profiles with the facade of the art school.
The first floor of the south wing, which is enclosed on the facade by a stone horseshoe arch, housed Henry van de Velde’s studio rooms.
In 1930 the artworks had been removed, today they are reconstructed.
After the Bauhaus had moved to Dessau, the State College of Crafts and Architecture was opened in the buildings of the School of Art and the School of Applied Arts in April 1926 under the direction of Otto Bartning.
Ernst Neufert, who had come to the Bauhaus in 1919 as one of the first students, took over as head of the building department.
