BAUHAUS KEY DATES: 1919-1930s A school of art, design and architecture founded in Germany in 1919. Bauhaus style is characterized  by its severely economic, geometric design and by its respect for materials. The Bauhaus school was created when Walter Gropius was appointed head of two art schools in  Weimar and united them in one. He coined the term Bauhaus as an inversion of 'Hausbau' - house  construction. Teaching at the school concentrated on functional craftsmanship and students were encouraged to  design with mass-produced goods in mind. Enormously controversial and unpopular with right  wingers in Weimar, the school moved in 1925 to Dessau.
