Mid Century Architect Walter Gropius Utilized Cork For His Own Home


Most people I am friendly with have heard of Bauhaus, either the band (which I grew up on) or the art movement. The founder of the German design school known as Bauhaus was one of the most influential architects of the 20th century and he utilized materials that best reflected the principals of maximum efficiency and simplicity of design. The photos above show Walter Gropius own personal home that uses cork tiles downstairs and on the spiral suitcase.
