Description

Walter Gropius: An Illustrated Biography, published by Phaidon, is a visual journey into the life of the Bauhaus founder and German pioneer. Collected by Leyla Daybelge and Magnus Englund, this is the first comprehensive biography of one of the most important figures in modern architecture. More than 300 pages and nearly 400 illustrations, including letters, telegrams, drawings, sketches, posters, and photographs, reveal the history of Gropius and Bauhaus in greater depth than ever before.

This illustrated biography tells the story of Gropius's life, beginning with his shattering experiences in World War One, his turbulent marriage to the notorious Alma Mahler, the establishment of the Bauhaus, and the tragic death of their daughter Manon.

After Gropius's agonized decision to leave Nazi Germany in 1933, the book explores his life in exile in London and then his move to America in 1937, where he lived and worked until his death in 1969.
