Walter Gropius, Work and Teamwork — S. Giedion

"The book opens with chapters on Gropius' background, heritage and personality, followed by appreciations contributed by two of his greatest contemporaries, Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier. Whether the subject under discussion is the astounding achievements of the bauhaus, the Paris Exhibition of 1930 or methods of house prefabrication; the reader is enabled simultaneously to realize the problem as seen by the architect, the impact of his solution upon the public at that time, and an assessment of the situation in the light of present trends of development".
