Bauhaus twenty-21 : an ongoing legacy by Gordon Watkinson ( Book )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Scarcely any other movement in architecture and design had such a lasting impact as the Bauhaus; indeed, for many it is synonymous with classic modernism. On the occasion of the institutiona (TM)s 90th birthday this traces the themes and the aesthetics of Bauhaus for our time. It shows twelve of the most important works of Bauhaus architecture from 1923-1930 und juxtaposes them with contemporary projects. The sensitive and careful photography by Gordon Watkinson delineate formal and conceptual connections between the classic and the new buildings and thus demonstrate the strong influence that the Bauhaus still exerts today. In this sense, the House am Horn in Weimar by Georg Muche and Adolf Meyer from 1923 corresponds with House of the Present in Munich by Allmann Sattler Wappner Architects (2005). House Tugendhat in Brno by Mies van der Rohe, a masterpiece of modern architecture, challenged traditional concepts of housing a just as the experimental House R 128 in Stuttgart by Werner Sobek (2001) did. And the German Pavilion by Mies van der Rohe in Barcelona from 1929 turns out to be a source of inspiration for the Skywood House in Denham, UK, by Graham Phillips some 70 years later
