THE AUERBACH HOUSE by Walter Gropius. With Adolf Meyer

  • Documents one of the most important milestones in the history of Bauhaus, the first private residence built by Walter Gropius
  • 2019 is the centenary of the Bauhaus movement

While Director of the Bauhaus, Walter Gropius built the Auerbach House in 1924, his first private house in the Bauhaus mode. Thus, this in cooperation with Adolf Meyer created building is one of the most important milestones for the early years of the Bauhaus. Certainly, the most outstanding feature of the house is the authentic interior color scheme. It was first discovered during the restoration that Alfred Arndt designed color schemes for every interior wall. Preserving almost all original details, today the house glows again with the 37 original pastel tones.
This book also recounts the moving story of the Auerbachs, a married Jewish couple who helped to shape Jena’s social life at the turn of the century, befriended Edvard Munch, fought for women’s rights, and whose house symbolized resistance to the expulsion of the Bauhaus from Weimar.
