Bauhaus in New England
The Bauhaus rose from the ashes of World War I in Germany 100 years ago. Its utopian ideas, inspired by founder Walter Gropius, attracted architects, artists and craftsmen from all around the world, challenging them to rethink design, its function in society and how it should be taught.
