The Klassik Stiftung Weimar is building a new building to house the Bauhaus Museum, to be completed by 2018.
In an international architectural competition, the plans of Prof. Heike Hanada (with Prof. Benedict Tonon) were chosen in the summer of 2012 to realise the building project. The architecture consists of a geometrically clear form at the edge of the Weimarhalle Park. Even from a distance, the building will become a visual highlight because of an innovative, artistic light installation on its facade.
The Klassik Stiftung Weimar owns one of the most important Bauhaus collections comprising over 10,000 objects from the early period of the school. In order to present this collection appropriately, the Klassik Stiftung Weimar is building the new building.
