100 years ago 'Staatliche Bauhaus' was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar. From Germany, this art academy grew into one of the most influential worldwide architectural and design movements of the 20th century. On the occasion of Bauhaus' jubilee, Germany Travel has developed a TINY [BAU]HAUS together with DUS Architects as a sample of the impressive Bauhaus heritage in Germany.

TINY [BAU]HAUS can be seen from 11 April to 5 May on the terrace of Het Nieuwe Instituut (though Het Nieuwe Café and TINY [BAU]HAUS will be closed from 23 to 30 April).
