Fagus Werk

Walter Gropius (Berlin 1883-1969 Boston) is today seen as co-founder of modern architecture, together with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier. Later he founded the world famous ‘Bauhaus’.

The ‘Fagus Werk’ in Alfeld an der Leine of 1911/1912, Gropius designed together with Adolf Meyer. This factory building became one of the forerunners of the later architectural movement known in Germany in the 1920s as ‘Neues Bauen’ or ‘Neue Sachlichkeit’. The use of a steel structure covered mainly in glass was an innovation at the time and hugely influential on 20th century architecture.
