Meet the Author

Walter Gropius was born in Berlin in 1883. The son of an architect, he apprenticed with Peter Behrens and established his first practice with Adolph Meyer. In 1919, after serving in the first World War, he was appointed Director of the Bauhaus. As war became eminent, Gropius left the Bauhaus; eventually, he was forced to leave Germany for the United States, where he became a professor at Harvard University. Throughout his career, Gropius created innovative designs that borrowed materials and methods of construction from modern technology. Gropius died in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1969.
