Walter Adolph Georg Gropius was a renowned German-American architect. He is counted among the pioneers of modern architecture along with the likes of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. He established the ‘Bauhaus’ design school in Weimar following which he came under prominence. The school that became famous for its approach to design was also noted for its unconventional leading-edge art and architecture. He remained director of Bauhaus in Germany for around a decade. The ‘International Exhibition of Modern Architecture’ featured his works in 1932 and enlisted him along with the likes of Mies van der Rohe, Alvar Aalto, J.J.P Oud, and Erich Mendelsohn who were considered advocates of ‘International Style of modern architecture’. As his modernist counterparts, he also focussed in creating ‘modern’ buildings for ‘modern man’. The main objective was to develop functional buildings devoid of any unnecessary antiquated ornamentation with patterns and designs of the Gothic, Romanesque, Neoclassical or Renaissance styles. Many of his geometric patterned buildings stood out for their cutting-edge creative designs implemented by him. He headed the ‘Graduate School of Design’ at the ‘Harvard University’. His notable works collaborated with other architects include ‘Harvard Graduate Center’, Cambridge; ‘John F. Kennedy Federal Office Building’, Boston; ‘Gropius House’, Massachusetts and ‘Pan Am Building’, New York.
