Eine »schulbildende« Wirkung des Unterrichts?

From 1930 to 1933, the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe shaped the fate of the Bauhaus; in particular, he tailored the avant-garde institution to the study of architecture. While research has so far concentrated on the content of his teaching, the group of students he specifically trained remained in the dark. With the help of statistical analysis and evaluation, the present essay takes a new methodical approach to describe Mies’ 169 architecture students in more detail; the focus is particularly on the 78 diploma students. It becomes clear that the ›pure Mies influence‹ was hardly present in these 5 semesters at the Bauhaus. Instead, the very heterogeneous group was characterized until the end by political trench warfare that had already arisen under the previous director Hannes Meyer.
