Gropius House Tour


Adult Enrichment / Walking Tours -
Winter 2022

This tour offers private access to the home of Walter Gropius, one of the most influential architects of the 20th century and founder of the German design school known as the Bauhaus. Modest in scale, the 1938 Gropius home was revolutionary in impact. It combined the traditional elements of New England architecture—wood, brick, and fieldstone—with innovative materials rarely used in domestic settings at that time: glass block, acoustical plaster, and chrome banisters—along with the latest technology in fixtures. In keeping with Bauhaus philosophy, every aspect of the house and its surrounding landscape was planned for maximum efficiency and simplicity of design. The house contains an important collection of furniture designed by Marcel Breuer and made in the Bauhaus workshops. With all the family possessions still in place, experience an immediacy rarely found in house museums.
