Walter Gropius: The Man Behind the Ideas. Ati Gropius Johansen. Soft cover.
An affectionate memoir
about Walter Gropius, by the architect's daughter, artist and designer Ati
Gropius Johansen. This portrait reveals the warm-hearted and generous man
behind the serious mien of the great artist and teacher. Throughout his life,
Gropius drew inspiration from music, literature, nature, and the companionship
of an international cadre of artists. His passionate commitment to ideals,
openness to new ideas, and quiet sense of humor made him a dynamic leader at
the Bauhaus in Germany and later at Harvard University. The home he built for
his family in Lincoln, Massachusetts, in 1938 welcomed colleagues, students,
and international visitors.
