Buildings and Projects
As founder of the Bauhaus school, Walter Gropius (1883–1969) is one of the icons of 20the century architecture. While his early buildings in Pomerania were still strongly marked by his teacher Peter Behrens, after an expressionistic phase focused on handicraft, he ultimately arrived at geometric abstraction. During the entire period he collaborated with other architects, founding the collective known as "The Architects Collaborative" in the US. The comprehensive monograph documents all 74 of the known buildings by Gropius that were realized, including many early works which he never publicized; but it also critically examines his unbuilt projects. The book is illustrated with new photographs by the author, historical figures, and with as new plans drawn by the author.

Die Gärten des Bauhauses
Diese erste grundlegende Auseinandersetzung mit den Gärten des Bauhauses von Walter Gropius und Carl Fieger vermittelt nicht nur wertvolle Erkenntnisse über Entwurfsplanung und Realisierung, sondern fördert auch die zum Teil erheblichen Eingriffe durch zahlreiche Renovierungsmaßnahmen zutage.
Painting, Photography, Film
Offered a position at the Weimar Bauhaus in 1923, László Moholy-Nagy (1895–1946) soon belonged to the inner circle of Bauhaus masters. When the school moved to Dessau, Moholy-Nagy and Walter Gropius began a fruitful collaboration as joint publishers of the Bauhausbücher series.
