The growing house

In summer 2019 students of the University of Kassel are building an unrealized design of the Bauhaus for Dessau - Törten from 1930 - the Growing House of Bauhaus Teacher Ludwig Hilberseimer. More than 80 years after its planning, the recently declared World Heritage Site ensemble of the Laubenganghäuser has been completed as a mixed development.

The new building is serving the neighbors and citizens of Dessau as a place for communal activities as well as presenting an important bauhaus-idea to those who are interested in the bauhaus.
