On the centenary of the opening of Germany’s most famous art school, our new exhibition looked afresh at the moment Britain became modern. Anchored in the brief period when three notable Bauhaus émigrés - Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and László Moholy-Nagy - lived and worked in the UK, it examined the reciprocal impact and legacy of this fertile moment in British architectural history through three chapters, and across three decades.
Drawing on RIBA’s world-class collections, rarely seen objects from the ex-Bauhaus tutors were on display alongside works by both well-known and overlooked British architects practising at the time.
