Walter Gropius was one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century. He studied at the Colleges of Technology of Berlin and Munich before working under the German architect Peter Behrens from 1907-10. He was influenced by the writings of Frank Lloyd Wright. He founded the Bauhaus (House of Building), one of the most influential architecture and design schools of the 20th century. The rise of National Socialism and Adolf Hitler drove Gropius out of Germany. He first went to London, but eventually settled in Boston, where he taught at Harvard and MIT.
