   schema:description ""Fagus traces the history of the company and its buildings from 1911, when the factory was designed and built, through the late 1920s. The book also focuses on the concept of industrial culture, in which architecture, interior design, graphic design, and photography were interrelated with the company's business philosophy. In fact, the Bauhaus workshops designed the interior and the office furniture, helping to fulfill Gropius's desire for "a true collaboration between industry and art.""--Jacket."@en ;
