As a formative exemplar of early architectural modernism, Bruno Taut’s seminal exhibition pavilion the Glashaus (literally translated Glasshouse) is logically a part of the real debate of rethinking the origins of modernism. although, the old list of Bruno Taut’s Glashaus has been essentially demonstrated by means of one artwork historian and critic. for this reason the ancient checklist of the Glashaus is considerably skewed towards a singlular proposal of Expressionism and unusually excludes Taut’s varied explanations for the layout of the development.
In an attempt to explain the difficult old checklist of the Glashaus, this ebook exposes Bruno Taut’s explanations and inspirations for its layout. the result's that Taut’s explanations are available in but unacknowledged precedents just like the botanical proposal of the Victoria regia lily; the industrial pursuits of Frederick Keppler because the Director of the Deutche Luxfer Prismen Syndikat; and imitation that derived overtly from the Gothic. the result is a considerable contribution to the re-examination of the widely accredited histories of the trendy move in structure.
