Walter Gropius

A reissue of one of the most important books on the modern movement in architecture, THE NEW ARCHITECTURE AND THE BAUHAUS, comments The Times Literary Supplement, "has all the permanence of a classic."

Translated from the German by P. Morton Shand, with a Preface by Frank Pick, Professor Gropius' book poses some of the fundamental problems presented by the relations of art and industry and considers their possible, practical solution. In tracing the rise of the New Architecture and the work of the now famous Bauhaus, Professor Gropius, with splendid clarity, calls for a new artist and architect educated to new materials and techniques and directly confronting the requirements of his own age.

THE NEW ARCHITECTURE AND THE BAUHAUS will be welcomed by the general reader as well as the student of architecture.
