The Bauhaus and its sites in Weimar and Dessau



C (ii) (iv) (vi)

The Committee decided to inscribe the nominated property on the basis of cultural criteria (ii), (iv) and (vi) considering that the site is of outstanding universal value since these buildings are the seminal works of the Bauhaus architectural school, the foundation of the Modern Movement which was to revolutionize artistic and architectural thinking and practice in the twentieth century.

The Committee also noted that this type of inscription testifies a better recognition of the 20th century heritage.
