    Quizzical Pursuit
    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

    Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
    Architecture Puzzler #547

    Question

    If we mentioned the names Walter Gropius, Hannes Meyer, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in the same sentence, we would probably be talking about what?

    Answer

    We are probably speaking about the Bauhaus, a school founded in 1919 in Weimer, Germany, by Walter Gropius. It originally attempted to unify art and craft; its mission eventually changed to the unification of art and technology. The Bauhaus was forced to close in the early 1930s by the German National Socialist Party. The three individuals mentioned served as directors.
