UNESCO World Heritage Day 2020
7 June 2020
Historical Bauhaus Buildings
In 1996, UNESCO added the Bauhaus with its sites in Weimar and Dessau to the list of international world heritage sites. In 2017, the world heritage site was expanded to include the Houses with Balcony Access in DessauTörten and the ADGB Trade Union School in Bernau. Of course the Bauhaus owes its iconic status to its outstanding architecture, which shaped the image of modernism in the 20th century. The Bauhaus was also recognised for its institutional role.
On UNESCO World Heritage Day 2020, the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation will communicate the importance of the Bauhaus in Dessau as a World Heritage Site to the public.
