Offering a rare opportunity to explore the largest and most luxurious house designed by Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus, and Marcel Breuer, leading architect and furniture designer of the twentieth century.

Built in 1939-40, the house embodies the Bauhaus total work of art philosophy, with Gropius and Breuer having designed every aspect of the building and its site.

Accompanying essays place this house firmly within the American modernist canon just as the Bauhaus celebrates its one-hundreth anniversary in 2019.
