Book ID: S00048

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 theChicago Tribune Tower and Harvard University Graduate Center, completed after Gropius’s 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.
