Walter Gropius, architect


Our company history commenced in 1911... - FAGUS

www.fagus.com [cached]

Born on 18.05.1883 in Berlin, Walter Gropius studied architecture from 1903-1907 at the Technical Universities of Munich and Berlin-Charlottenburg.
1908-1910 he worked at the Peter Behrens office in Berlin that planned and constructed the programmatic AEG-turbine hall from concrete, steel and glass. In 1910, he became an independent architect and founded his own office - together with another architect, Adolf Meyer. In 1911 he received the order to plan and realize the façade of the Fagus factory in Alfeld upon Leine. This iconic architectural jewel is nowadays considered the original oeuvre of modern architecture. As member of the Deutscher Werkbund (German Work Federation), he was one of the founding members of the Arbeitsrat für Kunst (Worker's Council for Art) in 1918. Gropius created the concept of merging the school of arts and crafts with the university of fine arts in Weimar in order to found an academy acting as a counselling centre for industry, trade and crafts. This was the cornerstone for the Staatliche Bauhaus (commonly known as Bauhaus) which was founded in Weimar in 1919 with Gropius as its Principal. Facing political resistance, the Bauhaus moved to Dessau in 1925. Following Gropius' plans, a new Bauhaus building was erected and also the Master's Houses. The workshops moved again to Berlin until Gropius resigned as Principal in 1928. Starting in 1926 Gropius intensively dealt with the topic of mass residential building as a solution for town planning and social problems and spoke up for the rationalisation of the building industry. He designed numerous residential building projects such as the housing estate Dessau-Törten (1926-1931), Dammerstock (1928/1929), residential blocks in the metropolitan settlement Siemensstadt in Berlin (1929/1930) and the project Wannsee-shore building, also in Berlin (1930/1931). With his idea of a "high-dimension construction kit" Gropius created a foundation for the Plattenbauten (building made with precast concrete slabs) in the world's satellite cities. On the one hand, industrial mass construction quickly provides urgently required living space, on the other hand it makes for anonymous living and creates new social problems. 1934 Gropius moved to England then taught at Harvard University from 1937-1952. In 1946, Walter Gropius founded "The Architects Collaborative" (TAC) with which he realized numerous projects. Gropius passed away in Boston on 05.07.1969. Walter Gropius is characterized as an extremely progressive artist. Already before the war he abandoned the massive façades of the past in favour of glazed-wall solutions which seemed to be weightless. In form's language he consequently avoided historicisms, ornaments or symbolic values and fully concentrated on the functionality of mere geometric basic bodies.
