Walter Gropius was the founder of the Bauhaus and an internationally acclaimed representative of modern architecture, who had a strong influence on architectural developments on both sides of the Atlantic.
Gropius studied architecture in Berlin and Munich from 1903 until 1907 but never actually graduated.
Gropius was the director of the school until 1928.
In 1934, Gropius left Germany due to the Nazi attacks on the Bauhaus and its members. He went to England were he collaborated with the well-known modernist architect Maxwell Fry on a number of projects. However, Gropius was not able to settle into the English environment well and changed his country of residence again in 1937. In that year he immigrated to the United States, were Joseph Hudnut, Dean of the Architectural School at Harvard University, had offered him an academic position.
Gropius taught at the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) for 14 years from 1938 until his retirement in 1952. Parallel to his teaching obligations Gropius joined an internationally successful architectural office, The Architects' Collaborative (TAC), within which he remained active until shortly before his death. In Cambridge, MA, he also reunited with his former Bauhaus colleague Marcel Breuer with whom Gropius had a professional partnership until 1941. Another emigre architect who teamed up with Gropius in the United States was Konrad Wachsman, who had left Germany in 1941.
Wachsmann and Gropius cooperated on the Packaged House System and unsuccessfully tried to sell the design through the General Panel corporation.
