Bauhaus as an architectural movement dating back to the 1910s which is in no way related to Gothic architecture, therefore it is plain incorrect to call "Bauhaus" (the architecture, not the band) a type of Gothic architecture.

Bauhaus the architecture emphasised no frills, a minimalist type of design. The band Bauhaus, which was into frills and costumes and details, probably used the name of the movement in an ironic fashion - this has been the topic of debate, but i'm confident that Peter Murphy ISN'T stupid and the name is an ironic statement!
"Of, relating to, or characteristic of a 20th-century school of design, the aesthetic of which was influenced by and derived from techniques and materials employed especially in industrial fabrication and manufacture."

a protogoth band from the 80's, they had a sound way ahead of their time. Famous for songs like hollow hills or Bela Logusi's dead, their music is very slow at times, and reminds one of wind, cold as death, whistling through the autumn leaves on the trees, a stagnant mist hanging low on the ground. At least, that's what I get out of it. Bauhaus is named after the german school of design, who was obsessed with efficency. For instance, they abolished the capital letters, because moving your finger over to the shift key took too much time.

1. One of the original bands who defined what we now see as "goth", along with Sisters Of Mercy, Siouxsie And The Banshees and Fields Of The Nephilim. Their music is very dark, and sometimes fairly morbid. Go and buy their greatest hits album and you'll see just how great they are. :)

2. A kind of Gothic architecture.
