This year the world celebrates 100 years since the founding of the Bauhaus, the State School of Architecture and Applied Arts, which was founded by architect Valter Gropius in 1919 in Weimar, Germany. The Bauhaus was considered a progressive school in all aspects, even in relation to gender equality. However, theory and practice were not proven equal, and this lecture will give a closer look at the biographies of women attending the Bauhaus, as well as the difficulties they faced there. The female names of Bauhaus such as Marianne Brandt, Anni Albers, Gunta Stolzl, Otti Berger, Gertrud Arndt and others are less well-known today than their male colleagues, although they are the authors of some of the most iconic products that this school has produced.
The aim of student workshop 100 years of Bauhaus (1919-1933) is the celebration of the anniversary of the founding of the School of Architecture, Applied Arts and Design in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin known all over the world known as the Bauhaus International School. Bauhaus or "house of the building" is the name derived from the reversal of the German language, "Hausbau", "building the house" with involvment of various crafts *.

In the Bauhaus centenary year, introduction to one of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia’s first commercial buildings conceived in the Modernist manner is aimed at presenting the main postulates of architectural functionalism that found their place in the architecture of the Bauhaus circle as well. In the walk through Ehrlich’s bank, we will try to “reconstruct” the original forms of the central counter room, which, through its purified forms, an open plan and the abundance of light from the ceiling lantern, opened a new chapter in the conception of the “treasury” architecture space in our regions.
