Though László Moholy-Nagy saw photography as the instrument of a 'new vision', it was only in 1929 that it became part of the curriculum at the Dessau Bauhaus. But now vintage prints with a Bauhaus tag have profited from the huge general inflation in photo prices. In 'Designing Utopia' at Michael Hoppen Gallery, Heinz Loew's Study in composition and lighting with elementary shapes (1928) - a carefully premeditated arrangement - sells for £3.500, but so does Irena Bluhora's much more casual shot of students in an outside courtyard and an undistinguished image of one of Gropius' Master's Houses by Lucia Moholy. Most intriguing are twin photos of delicate wooden constructions from a Josef Albers foundation course.At 3 Jubilee Place, SW3, until 17 January.

Information for inclusion should be sent to Andrew Mead at The Architects' Journal at least two weeks before publication.
