Bauhaus Archiv near the Tiergarten
It's looking a bit worn yet still has those Modernist touches. You enter from Klingelhoferstrasse, then descend, via the meandering walkway, to the courtyard and entrance to the museum and archive.
Here's a view of Wm resting on Gropius's walkway.
Inside I borrowed an excellent audio guide on the school's activities in furniture design, metalwork, stage work, photography and architecture.
I also viewed the special exhibit ON-TYPE: Texts on Typography, which unfortunately was captioned only in German.
No photos allowed of the collection, and a gift shop of lovely things.
