International Architecture : BAUHAUSBUECHER 1, Hardback Book

International Architecture : BAUHAUSBUECHER 1 Hardback

Edited by Walter Gropius

Description

In what he called his "illustrated guide to modern architecture," which starts off the Bauhausbucher series, Gropius gives an overview of the international architecture of the mid-1920s.

A preface by the author explores, briefly but in detail, the guiding principles that unite the avant-garde in all countries.

This statement is followed by an extensive illustrated section showing examples of architecture from around the world.

According to Gropius, these illustrations bear witness to the "development of a consistent worldview" that disposes of the prior role of the architect and expresses itself in a new language of shapes.
