The layout of the magazine was adjusted at irregular intervals to the zeitgeist. While the first covers were influenced by Art Nouveau, a rather formal typology was used from 1907 onwards. Paul Renner revised the layout in 1927, the conservative-classical design has been maintained then until the early 1960s. Since the award-winning relaunch in 2011, Baumeister includes sections such as Minds, Ideas, Questions and Solutions.
