New Bauhaus (ID)Back to previous page
Always a Part of the Present
No other name is mentioned as often in the context of the Bauhaus as that of Walter Gropius. This is no coincidence. An essential secret of his enduring success is the effective network of loyal employ- ees and friends that the Bauhaus founder kept alive and nurtured far beyond the end of his university.
Teachers, students and networks carried Bauhaus ideas well beyond the places where the school operated and the years of its existence.
