Description

Published by Taschen, Gropius provides a compact insight into the career of the German-born architect Walter Gropius (1883–1969). The founding director of the Bauhaus, Gropius created a unique combination of light, geometry and industrial design in his works. Written by Gilbert Lupfer and Paul Sigel from the Technische Universität Dresden, the book is part of Taschen's Basic Architecture series that presents life and work of internationally renowned architects with approximately 120 photographs, sketches and drafts. The series has been edited by German art historian Peter Gössel.

Modernist visionary Walter Gropius was founding director of the Bauhaus and pioneer of the International Style. From the Bauhaus School in Dessau, Germany, to the Chicago Tribune Tower, his fundamental tenets of functional beauty and a complete aesthetic environment remain benchmarks for architects, designers, and urbanists alike.
