    Course content
    The Dessau Summer School of Architecture develops its thematic focus from the relevance of Bauhaus Dessau in the history of architecture. Parts of the course are conducted within Bauhaus Dessau.
    At the Dessau Summer School of Architecture, participants from different nations enter into an architectural dialogue on a review of modernity in architecture. To this purpose, the components of the programme place current developments in architecture and design in relation to the history of modernity and to its evidence on site.
    The Dessau Summer School of Architecture starts, in cooperation with Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, with a workshop on "bauhaus callisthenics". The subsequent studio project is developed from this basis and focuses on social, ecological, and sustainable strategies of building. The current programme is available at from December 2017.
    The subjects "Art Class", "Architecture and Society", the "German Language Class", excursions to historic and new locations of Modern Architecture in the region and trips to Berlin, Frankfurt and Leipzig develop and deepen this focal point.
    The Dessau Summer School of Architecture ends with our big campus party after the final presentation and the awarding of the certificates.

    About the City
    Dessau was first mentioned in 1213. During the period of Enlightenment, the famous Dessau-Woerlitz gardens were created. In 1774, Basedow established the well-known "Philantropinum" - a reformed public school. In 1919, Hugo Junkers developed and built the first metal aeroplane in the world. The world-renowned "Bauhaus" moved from Weimar to Dessau in 1925. Six years later, the Nazis forced its closure. Today, Walter Gropius's Bauhaus Building in Dessau is a long-established icon of Modernism.
