Life of walter gropius

Op voorraad
The concept for the Bauhaus - literally 'building house' - came from Walter Gropius, a practicing architect and one of the great thinkers of the 20th century. Young Gropius's idea for the Bauhaus emerged from his experience of the first world war in which he served as a cavalry officer on the western front. His response to the devastating scenes that he lived through was a stark determination to 'start again from zero.' Only a new outlook on design and architecture could provide the means for a shattered civilisation literally to rebuild itself. Gropius's vision was a democratic concept of art for the people: art for social betterment in which everyone would share.
