911 SC at Gropius House. Lincoln, Massachusetts, USA.
Built in 1938, the Gropius House combined traditional elements of New England architecture—brick, wood, and fieldstone—with modern touches: glass block, acoustical plaster, chrome banisters, and the latest technology in fixtures.
The home’s progenitor, Walter Gropius, founded the famed German design school Bauhaus in 1919. In 1937 he was hired to teach architecture at Harvard’s School of Design, requiring a new family home in Massachusetts. Gropius House served just such a purpose, until the architect’s passing in 1969. Photos by Trevor Dalton
