Should Bauhaus be considered an Order of Architecture?

Should Bauhaus (and modern architecture) be considered an architectural order?

from the forum :
>>>Frank your remarks are interesting and supported by what we can read in architecture's history books, but... the present is not a history book...

>>>i would overturn the question: what if the present would rather suggest us to review and widen our notion of "architectural order"? The line - Bauhaus - Mies van der Rohe - less is more - etc... has, in the course of time, codified 1 (anti-order) style that, in the end, became an architectural order itself, and the proofs are its duration, permanence, constancy.
