Bauhaus (“House of Building” or “Building School”) is the common term for the Staatliches Bauhaus, a school in Germany that combined crafts and the fine arts, and for the approach to design that it publicized and taught. It operated from 1919 to 1933.  The Bauhaus school was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar.  Bauhaus style became one of the most influential currents in Modernist architecture and modern design.  The Bauhaus had a profound influence upon subsequent developments in art, architecture, graphic design, interior design, industrial design and typography.  (Coincidentally, the word “Bauhaus” was later adopted as the name of a gothic rock band lead by Peter Murphy.)

Copyright information:  The word “Bauhaus” is not copyrighted, nor is the Old English font in which it here appears.  Further, to my knowledge, neither the band nor the school of architecture ever displayed their names in the Old English font.  The word appears most often in a typography designed by Herbert Bayer, or in generic Times New Roman.
