The proclamation also described the utopian craft guild that combined architecture, painting and sculpture into a single but creative expression.
The craft-based curriculum used at the Bauhaus was designed to turn out designers and artisans into beautiful and useful objects that are appropriate for the new system of living. The Bauhaus was designed to combine the elements of design and fine arts education. The curriculum started with a preliminary course that provided a brief background to the students who were admitted from a wide range of social and educational framework. The preliminary course was taught by veteran visual artists such as Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and Josef Albers among others.
The immersion of the students in the Bauhaus educational framework allowed them to participate in specialized workshops. The workshops often included cabinetmaking, metalworking, pottery, weaving, wall painting and typography (Raizman 188). Even though the initial aim of the Bauhaus was to unify the arts through craft, the aspects of the approach proved financially impractical. Gropius found it important to maintain the aim of the Bauhaus and decided to reposition its goals in 1923. He stressed on the benefits of designing for mass production and encouraged the school to adopt the “Art into Industry” slogan. The Bauhaus later moved from Weimar to Dessau in 1925, where Gropius set up a new building to accommodate the school. The building contained several features that later formed the hallmarks of modern architecture. The modern architecture included a glass curtain wall, steel-frame construction, and pinwheel plans among others. Today, the Bauhaus is still an experimental design and research and teaching which are dedicated to the development and communication of the Bauhaus legacy. It also seeks to work on contemporary issues affecting the urban sector.
