Walter Gropius and Bauhause

this is famous Bauhause, I am attracted to the architecture and its history.

Walter Gropius was a German architect and founder of Bauhaus along with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier, he is one of the pioneering masters of "modern" architecture.

his educational philosophy encompassed the designing of all functional objects. the school's program was balanced between practical training in the crafts and theoretical training in design.
Also the integration of the arts was stressed in the creation of original furniture and buildings,
which often times were in industrial setting and incorporated modern and innovative materials.

As one of the most important architects and educators of the 20th century, he raised the level of product design by combining art and industry which attracted a faculty includes Paul Klee, Johannes Itten, Josef Albers, Herbet Bayer, László Moholy-Nagy, and Wassily Kandinsky.
