Abstract

Nearly fifteen years after the beginning of the first systematic documentation works in the so-called “Masterhouses” in Dessau and actually with a distance of six years time since the inauguration of the restored “Bauhaus” school-building it seems to be useful to draw a critical résumé for further leading discussions. This is especially desirable because the guidelines, the methods and the strategies developed and finally realized during the conservation works were at the time without doubt at an experimental state.
