Bauhaus Architecture 1919–1933
Hans Engels, Axel Tilch
The architectural photographer, Hans Engels, depicts a selection of famous and less famous buildings by architects such as Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The buildings are shown in chronological order, from the formation of the Bauhaus in 1919 through to its closure in 1933, using masterful photographs taken specially for this book. Informative texts by Axel Tilch complement the photos with valuable details about the buildings’ history.

The Bauhaus stands at the outset of a comprehensive approach to design which is today promoted with renewed vigour. How can designers place their work in a larger context, and how can they play a part in shaping society?
