Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus and head of Harvard's department of architecture, was also a talented architectural innovator. His Fagus Factory with Adolf Meyer, and his Bauhuas building in Dessau, were remarkable examples of the early International Style. This interview, one of a series conducted by architectural publisher John Peter, was recorded in 1955 in two parts - at Gropius's home in Lincoln, Massachusetts, and at his office in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Here he describes the origins, philosophy and enduring influence of the Bauhaus, as he also discusses the importance of helping students to find their own way, and predicts a slow but steady move towards pre-fabrication.
