Walter Gropius was born in Germany. He’s a renowned German architect. Gropius was born on May 18th, 1883, and died on July 5th, 1969. He is considered to be one of the pioneers of modern architecture, with a few other names. These others include Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier. However, they aren’t the only architects that are considered to be the pioneers of modern architecture.
Gropius started his career after World War I. If the war hadn’t happened, his career would’ve taken off in 1914. He was called as reservist almost immediately after the war started. He survived the war, despite being shot out of the sky twice and being buried under rubble and dead bodies. For an architect, he was quite hardcore.
