From Bauhaus to Our House

From Bauhaus to Our

After critiquing―and infuriating―the art world with The Painted Word, award-winning author Tom Wolfe shared his less than favorable thoughts about modern architecture in From Bauhaus to Our Haus. In this examination of the strange saga of twentieth century architecture, Wolfe takes such European architects as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, and Bauhaus art school founder Walter Gropius to task for their glass and steel box designed buildings that have influenced―and infected―America’s cities.

Bauhaus. Updated Edition (Bauhaus-archiv Berlin)

Bauhaus. Updated Edition (Bauhaus-archiv

In a fleeting 14-year period between two world wars, Germany’s Bauhaus School of Art and Design changed the face of modernity. With utopian ideas for the future, the school developed a pioneering fusion of fine art, craftsmanship, and technology, which they applied across media and practices from film to theater, sculpture to ceramics.This book is made in collaboration with the Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung in Berlin, the world’s largest collection on the history of the Bauhaus. Some 550 illustrations including architectural plans, studies, photographs, sketches, and models record not only the realized works but also the leading principles and personalities of this idealistic creative community through its three successive locations in Weimar, Dessau, and Berlin. From informal shots of group gymnastics to drawings guided by Paul Klee, from extensive architectural plans to an infinitely sleek ashtray by Marianne Brandt, the collection brims with the colors, materials, and geometries that made up the Bauhaus vision of a “total” work of art.As we approach the Bauhaus centennial, this is a defining account of its energy and rigor, not only as a trailblazing movement in modernism but also as a paradigm of art education, where creative expression and cutting-edge ideas ...

Bauhausmadels: A Tribute to Pioneering Women Artists

Bauhausmadels: A Tribute to Pioneering Women

Pioneers of Modernity A tribute to the Bauhaus’s women artists Celebrating the centennial of a groundbreaking School of Art and Design, this volume marks the founding of the Bauhaus with a visual exploration of its most underrated members. While the institution provided women with new opportunities in education, along the way, they were faced with unreasonable family expectations, the ambiguous attitude of the faculty and administration, outdated social conventions, and, ultimately, the political repression of the Nazi regime. Unprecedented in current literature, Bauhausmädels presents 87 artists and artisans through texts and photographic portraits, many published for the very first time. Recent archival discoveries revive the biographies of better-known talents. In the 1920s, the title “Bauhaus girl” expressed a silent admiration for the young women who courageously eluded traditional gender roles to build a different, creative future. These include Marianne Brandt, the first woman to be admitted to the Bauhaus metalworking program whose designs are used by Alessi to this day; Gertrud Arndt who, dissuaded by the faculty from studying architecture, instead shone through her photography and rug design; and Lucia Moholy, who photographed the Bauhaus buildings in iconic shot...

Gropius: The Man Who Built the Bauhaus

Gropius: The Man Who Built the

“This is an absolute triumph―ideas, lives, and the dramas of the twentieth century are woven together in a feat of storytelling. A masterpiece.”―Edmund de Waal, ceramic artist and author of The White RoadThe impact of Walter Gropius can be measured in his buildings―Fagus Factory, Bauhaus Dessau, Pan Am―but no less in his students. I. M. Pei, Paul Rudolph, Anni Albers, Philip Johnson, Fumihiko Maki: countless masters were once disciples at the Bauhaus in Berlin and at Harvard. Between 1910 and 1930, Gropius was at the center of European modernism and avant-garde society glamor, only to be exiled to the antimodernist United Kingdom during the Nazi years. Later, under the democratizing influence of American universities, Gropius became an advocate of public art and cemented a starring role in twentieth-century architecture and design.Fiona MacCarthy challenges the image of Gropius as a doctrinaire architectural rationalist, bringing out the visionary philosophy and courage that carried him through a politically hostile age. Pilloried by Tom Wolfe as inventor of the monolithic high-rise, Gropius is better remembered as inventor of a form of art education that influenced schools worldwide. He viewed argument as intrinsic to creativity. Unusually for one in his position, Gr...

Architects of Fortune: Mies Van Der Rohe and the Third Reich

Architects of Fortune: Mies Van Der Rohe and

Mies van der Rohe is one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century. The inventor of the modern steel-and-glass skyscraper, Mies was a found of modernism, the head of the Bauhaus, and the creator of landmarks such as the Barcelona Pavilion and the Seagram Building. His architectural style was based on aesthetic principles that reflected not only how he built, but also how he lived. In 1937 Mies came to the United States as a refugee from Nazi Germany. claiming that "one does not live in the past", Mies never spoke about his last years there. Did he have something to hide? Was there any truth to the rumors and accusations that surrounded his name? Architects of Fortune is an inquiry into Mies's activities in Germany from 1933 to 1937 and his relationship to the third Reich. Seeking the realities that lie behind Mies's enigmatic genius, Elaine Hochman has found that the reasons for Mies's silence are more complex than he cared to admit. As the author blends history and biography, she examines not only Mies, but a generation of Germans who struggled with the Pressures to leave their country and their desire to stay and live their lives as they wished. Ultimately, we come to see that Mies - like so many of his fellow Germans - left his country not in protest (as comm...

Mies van der Rohe - IIT Campus: Illinois

From 1938 to 1958 Mies van der Rohe planned and built the new campus for the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. Limited funding demanded extreme financial prudence and the imagination of the architect was fired by this challenge. With load-bearing brick walls, skeletal structures constructed out of visible reinforced concrete and steel, Mies created a masterpiece of simple elegance. The clarity and structure of the basic form has proved to be an enduring solution for the various classrooms and laboratories over the years. With concise texts and expressive images, this book captures the essence of these institute buildings which together with the book on Crown Hall, the Department of Architecture at ITT, presents an indispensable documentation of these epoch-making buildings.

Jahrhunderts und Wegbereiter der Modernen Architektur. Wahre Baukunst war für ihn nicht der Mode unterworfen, aber auch nicht gültig bis in alle Ewigkeit. Jedes Gebäude sollte den treibenden Kräften seiner Zeit geschuldet werden: der Massengesellschaft, der Wirtschaftsordnung und der Technologie. Kunst war für ihn nicht das willkürlich Neue, sondern das Ergebnis einer geordneten Struktur.Konstruktion, Material, Transparenz und Ästhetik bildeten bei seinen Werken stets eine Einheit. Die gesamte architektonische Konstruktion basiert auf einem Rastersystem und dem Goldenen Schnitt. Edle Materialien wurden sorgsam ausgewählt und perfekt verarbeitet.Dieses wohlüberlegte, nachvollziehbare Bauen und Mies’ Persönlichkeit weckten das Interesse vieler seiner Kollegen.

MODERN AT MIDCENTURY: Ruhtenberg Revisited

MODERN AT MIDCENTURY: Ruhtenberg

Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe reign as the two most important modern architects of the 20th century. Remarkably, their considerable influences were felt in the city of Colorado Springs during the late 1940s – Wright’s through the work of his granddaughter, Elizabeth Wright Ingraham, and Mies’s in the oeuvre of A. Gustaf Jan Ruhtenberg. Elaine Freed, author of a book about Ingraham’s signature houses, turns attention here to Jan Ruhtenberg’s journey from Riga to Berlin, then Stockholm and New York, and finally to Colorado Springs, where he designed and remodeled dozens of houses and other structures in the Miesian mode. After placing Ruhtenberg’s work in the context of European and American modernism, Freed focuses on five unique houses in Colorado Springs, ranging from a modest “cottage” to a spacious Italian villa. Her insightful view includes Ruhtenberg’s own home in the exclusive Broadmoor neighborhood.  Design magazines in Europe and America celebrated Ruhtenberg’s designs at midcentury, and the popular press did as well. His work appeared in Progressive Architecture and Architectural Forum – and in Time, Life, and Fortune.  Later, Ruhtenberg’s legacy faded, but recently his design reputation has gained new respect.

A Theory of Craft: Function and Aesthetic Expression

A Theory of Craft: Function and Aesthetic

What is craft? How is it different from fine art or design? In A Theory of Craft, Howard Risatti examines these issues by comparing handmade ceramics, glass, metalwork, weaving, and furniture to painting, sculpture, photography, and machine-made design from Bauhaus to the Memphis Group. He describes craft as uniquely blending function with a deeper expression of human values that transcend culture, time, and space. Craft must articulate a role for itself in contemporary society, says Risatti; otherwise it will be absorbed by fine art or design, and its singular approach to understanding the world will be lost.

Historia del Diseño. Bauhaus. Enseñanza del diseño y

La Bauhaus sin duda fue la experiencia más importante en el campo del diseño de todo el siglo XX. El entorno sociológico y pedagógico de la Bauhaus, en Alemania, a finales de 1918, el Emperador Guillermo II dimite, después de haber terminado la IGM y haber sido él el responsable de una política militarista que había provocado la contienda. Se forma entonces un gobierno provisional, el que conocemos como “La República de Weimar” se llama así debido a que en esta ciudad se reunió la asamblea constituyente, de mayoría socialista, y que de forma democrática eligió a un presidente, Frederich Ebert, el 4 de febrero de 1919. La historia de la República de Weimar será paralela a la de la escuela de la Bauhaus, en esta misma ciudad, y en este mismo año, el genial arquitecto Walter Gropius se embarcó en el ambicioso proyecto de crear una escuela de arquitectura y de diseño que va a durar exactamente los mismos años que la república de Weimar, hasta 1933, cuando sube al poder el gobierno Nacional Socialista de Hitler.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - and. Länder - Zeitalter Weltkriege, Note: 12 Punkte, , Veranstaltung: All, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Jede Staatsform hat ihren eigenen Kunststil, der die Funktion erfüllt, die in der jeweiligen Epoche vom höchsten Wert war. Kunst, Kultur und Politik sind also interdependent. Inwieweit sie voneinander abhängig sind und warum jede Epoche ihren eigenen Kunststil hat, wird in der Seminararbeit dargelegt, wobei der Schwerpunkt auf das Bauhaus gelegt wird. Demzufolge stellt sich die Frage, was das Bauhaus überhaupt ist und wie es dazu kam. Der Kunststil der parallel zur Weimarer Republik entstand, war das Bauhaus. Warum gründete er sich genau in der Weimarer Republik? Die Zeit in der Weimarer Republik wurde Moderne genannt. Der Kunststil des Kaiserreichs war der Historismus und im Nationalsozialismus war es die Monumentalkunst. Warum konnte das Bauhaus im Nationalsozialismus nicht weiter existieren?

Hertwig: The Zelig of Design

Hertwig: The Zelig of

A biography about the graphic designer Max Hertwig who worked at the beginning of the 20th century with and for such masters of design as Peter Behrens, Walter Gropius, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Chamelion- and Zelig-like he happened to be in the right places at the right time without getting much attention for his substantial contributions to the discipline and profession of graphic design. This book, by Hertwig's grandson C. Arthur Croyle—a well-known illustrator and painter—provides a comprehensive and exhaustive study of Hertwig's amazing, yet almost forgotten work. Croyle’s story of Hertwig serves as a vehicle to chronicle the events, movements, and people who impacted art and design during the culturally and politically dynamic era in the early part of the 20th century. Hertwig’s professional activities intersect with Peter Behrens, Walter Gropius, and Mies van der Rohe, among other bright stars of architecture, graphic design, and art, and includes participation in landmark design work for such companies as AEG (General Electric Company of Germany) and the Fagus Factory, design initiatives that preceded and shaped the foundation for the Bauhaus philosophy.

Zum einen soll dargestellt werden, in welcher Art und Weise sie die Verhältnisse der Generation der 20er und die herrschenden Umstände der damaligen Zeit widerspiegelt. Zum anderen soll verdeutlicht werden, was die beim Bau und der Planung angewendeten Neuerungen für die Bevölkerung und die Wohnverhältnisse bzw. die damalige Wohn- und Lebensqualität bedeuteten. Ziel ist es also, die Weißenhofsiedlung unter dem Aspekt der allgemeinen gesellschaftlichen Situation der 20er Jahre zu untersuchen und aufzuzeigen, inwiefern sie diese repräsentiert. Die Architektur ist in diesem Sinne zwar auch äußerst relevant, da innovative Bausysteme und die Verwendung neuer Materialien eine große Rolle spielen, jedoch sollen diese nur in Bezug auf ihre Bedeutung für die damaligen Verhältnisse dargestellt werden.

Modern Architecture

Modern

This book is an attempt to define the historical dimensions of modern architecture and evaluate its meaning in terms of modern life. Although it is not intended as a historical survey, it shows how the rise of the architecture of democracy is related to the roots and formulation of contemporary thought. Professor Scully traces the major developments which have taken place in modern architecture beginning with the democratic and industrial revolutions of the late eighteenth century and the subsequent breakdown of the old humanist, man-centered world. From the Baroque synthesis of freedom and order evolved two diversified tendencies: one was what the author calls "Romantic-Classicism", the other was "Romantic-Naturalism." Professor Scully examines the significant aspects of twentieth-century architecture from the first successful attempts made by Louis Sullivan to give steel construction its own form and expression, to the unique creative originality of Frank Lloyd Wright. He also discusses Art Nouveau in Europe, Gropius and the Bauhaus, and finally such influential figures as Mies van der Rohe, Alvar Aalto, and Le Corbussier. The author is Professor of the History of Art at Yale University from which he graduated with an M.A. in 1947 and a Ph.D. in 1949. He isan award-winning auth...
