Description

Walter Gropius (1883-1969) set out to build for the future. As the founding director of the Bauhaus, the Berlin-born architect had an inestimable influence on our aesthetic environment, championing a bold new hybrid of light, geometry, and industrial design, as dazzling today as it was a century ago.

In this essential architect introduction, we survey the evolution and influence of a 20th-century visionary with 20 of his most significant projects, from the Bauhaus Building in Dessau, Germany to the Chicago Tribune Tower and Harvard University Graduate Center, completed after Gropius' exodus to the United States in 1937.

We explore his role both as an architectural practitioner, and as a writer and educator, not only as a Bauhaus pioneer, but also, along with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, as a leading proponent of the International Style.
