1: Teenage Marriage

Walter Gropius Architect
A new series of profiles on the life and work of artists of international stature
Written and directed by ROGER GRAEF
Produced by ALLAN KING ASSOCIATES
At the start of his career Walter Gropius , unlike the other founders of modern architecture, was concerned not only with buildings but with society as a whole. What he sought was unity, right down to the smallest detail, and to this end set out to show that the arrival of modern technology was something for the artist to use and control, not something to run away from.
In 1919 he merged the two academies at Weimar, that of Arts and that of Crafts, and by combining form and function virtually invented industrial design. The new school, known as the Bauhaus, had, and still has, a deep effect on all aspects of design. In 1932 the Nazi rise to power drove Gropius out, first to Britain, then to
America where he still thrives as architect and teacher.
