Saturday Read: Gropius and the Bauhaus

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany, by Walter Gropius. Take a look at this New Yorker piece by Dan Chiasson reviewing Fiona MacCarthy’s just published book, “Gropius: The Man Who Built the Bauhaus.” A good primer on Gropius’ own life and his vision for the Bauhaus. I hoping to get to Germany this year. You can even stay at the Bauhaus in Dessau.
