Walter Gropius

Walter Gropius (1883-1969) was a renowned German architect and a key figure in the development of modern architecture. He is best known as the founder of the Bauhaus School, a groundbreaking institution that combined fine arts, crafts, and technology and profoundly impacted architecture, design, and art education in the 20th century. Gropius began his career in architecture working under Peter Behrens, where he also met other future modernist architects like Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier. Some of Gropius’s most notable architectural works include the Fagus Factory in Alfeld, Germany, and the Bauhaus Building in Dessau, Germany.
