Bauhaus-Universität Weimar was originally founded in 1860 under the title of Grand Ducal Saxon Art School, which later in 1905 got merged with Weimar Sculpture School, and finally gained its true reputation when it was named after “Bauhaus” by Walter Gropius in 1919. Throughout its history, it has always been focusing on a structure that is based on creativity and collectiveness.
Today, the school welcomes everyone from all around the world with its four faculties of Architecture and Urbanism, Civil Engineering, Art and Design, and Media. The education specializes both in the artistic and technical fields; from fine arts and product design to media design and media culture, from architecture and civil engineering to environmental science and project management. The faculties are grounded on the notions of continuously producing, working in collaboration and learning new technics/technology while still paying attention to hand-crafting.
