The Bauhaus building in Dessau, Germany, is not just an Icon of Modernism but an international media star: ever since December 4, 1926, when Walter Gropius dedicated this building for his world-famous school of design, hundreds of magazines, books, postcards and even advertising campaigns have imprinted its image in people's minds. Of late the Bauhaus building has come to be seen as somewhat of an aging star, but on this, its 80th anniversary, its long restoration process has finally come to an end.

This volume discusses the building's undiminished capacity to fascinate across three chapters--Architecture, Images and Monument--exploiting recent findings in the history and theory of architecture as well as outcomes from the renovation of the complex. Another section deals with the impact of the Bauhaus building's iconic image, while a flip-book gives a tour of the edifice.
