Walter Gropius Bauhaus

Presentation on Architect Walter Gropius

Walter Gropius or Walter Adolph Georg Gropius (May 18, 1883 – July 5, 1969) was a German architect and founder of the Bauhaus School, who,along with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier andOscar Niemeyer, is widely regarded as one of the pioneering masters of modern architecture. Walter Gropius was born in Berlin and had an influential proponent of modern design. He furthered his ideas through Bauhaus school design, his own architectural works and his long years of teaching at Harvard. He was taught by his father, who was also an architect and learned the study of proportions with actual architectural expressions. He took 7 months study in Spain and met Peter Behrensin 1908 and worked under him. In 1934, he moved to U.K. London, where he was the controller of design.in 1937. He departed London for New York and Harvard University at an age when most men retire. Gropius began his carrier in full vitality and enthusiasm unfortunately, arch commissions did not match with that enthusiasm.

Quote by Walter Gropius

“If your contribution has been vital there will always be somebody to pick up where you left off, and that will be your claim to immortality” – Walter Gropius
