The correct answer is option C
Walter Gropius was a German architect and the director of the Bauhaus School. He founded the school in 1919. The school combined the education of arts, architecture and craft, with a vision to complete the work of Art. He exerted a major influence on the development of modern architecture.

He was the architect that claimed: “The ultimate goal of the new architecture was the composite but inseparable work of an art, in which the old dividing line between monumental and decorative elements will have disappeared forever”. He made this fact known when he wrote in The New Architecture and the Bauhaus (1935).
