The culturally important city of Weimar is home to some of the most important manifestations of our modern cultural heritage. Even just the obvious associations of the city with names like Goethe, Herder, Wagner, Liszt, Nietzsche, and last but not least Gropius and Bauhaus, demarcate a broad field of German cultural historyand many trajectories of Weimar-linked traditions converge at the location of the present day Bauhaus-Universität. The campus of the Bauhaus-Universität and its historical development are closely linkedwith the rest of the city both historically and urbanistically. Without question, the nucleus of this place of education is the ensemble of the main building and the smaller, perpendicularly angled former School of Arts and Craftsboth designed by Henry van de Velde and listed by UNESCO-south of the center of town. As part of a design course in 2016, a space allocation plan ascertained actual spatial needs of the university in terms of space and documented the general desire to improve the situationin terms of openspace. In an accompanying symposium, the historical and urban planning context was examined on location, and conversations with Weimar students and instructors gave rise to a definite overall impression of the current campus situation. The present study pertains to the northern section of the university grounds, with the fictitious demolition of three non-valuable utilitarian structures providing the space for the proposed solution. The design developed here intervenes starting from the center of the campus and running deep into the space between the diagonally converging street-facing buildings on either side. The result is an inward-looking triangle that gives rise to a coherent spatial quality on the inside while respecting the private spheres of neighbors on the outside. Three structures flank the open-space thus created: The western side of the campus grounds play host to the new Study Center. This freestanding structure, setback from the line formed by the neighboring buildings, stands at the head of the new overall ensemble and functions as an interface between the campus grounds and the surrounding neighborhood. The rectangularWorkshop extends northward from the study center and demarcates the border between the campus and its surroundings. From the campuss northernmost point, a pergolaruns southward along an enclosing walland leads to the Administration Building, whichin dialogue with the historic ensemblefunctions as an antipode to the Study Center. While the described structures flank the new triangle, the Exhibition Building forms the heart of the expanded campus and simultaneously divides it into three open spaces of varying intimacy. And for its part, the generously proportioned axis between the historic Main Building and the Exhibition Buildingmakes for a new balance between the historical structures and lends their representative façades new weight.
