31 in 31 of Your Favorite Buildings in Boston: #13

The Gropius House, 68 Baker Bridge Road, Lincoln, MA 01773

Walter Gropius, 1938

I was inspired to highlight 31 buildings in Boston in 31 days after the architecture blog A Daily Dose of Architecture . Not only was I going to highlight 31 buildings, but 31 of Bostonian’s favorite buildings. This is the series.

About the Gropius House:

A Modernism gem in New England, the Gropius House is owned by Historic New England and open to the public for viewing. Designed by Walter Gropius, founder and director of the Bauhaus, one of the most influential design schools in the world, the house is also furnished with furniture designed by Marcel Breuer, Saarinen, Aalto and Marianne Brandt among others. I visited the house last fall and blogged about it, you can read my post here.

I think it was because of my interaction with the Gropius House, I have developed a passion for Modernist buildings worldwide. Is there a building or a house out there that has inspired you or changed your life? If so, which one? I’d love to see it and learn more about it!
