Item description for Umbauhaus by Matthias Hollwich...
Should the Director's House Gropius in Dessau, a masterpiece of modernism, be rebuilt? Should an attempt be made to continue the traditions of Bauhaus? What role do modern principles play in today's architecture? What can be expected from alternative approaches such as manipulation or an entirely new design? These and other questions are examined here--through numerous black and white images and two DVDs--in order to continue the debate concerning the Director's House that was destroyed during the Second World War.
