Unique Experiences - Spring -
Spring 2024

Walter Gropius, founder of the German design school known as the Bauhaus, was one of the most influential architects of the 20th century. He designed this house in Lincoln as his family home in 1938, when he came to teach at Harvard's Graduate School of Design. Modest in scale, it combined the traditional elements of New England architecture with innovative materials rarely used in domestic settings at that time. Enjoy this one hour guided house tour where all the family possessions are still in place.

Gropius House, 1938

Walter Gropius, founder of the German design school known as the Bauhaus, was one of the most influential architects of the 20th century. He designed this house as his family home in 1938, when he came to teach at Harvard's Graduate School of Design.

Modest in scale, the house was revolutionary in impact. It combined the traditional elements of New England architecture with innovative materials rarely used in domestic settings at that time. The museum contains a significant collection of furniture designed by Marcel Breuer and fabricated in the Bauhaus workshops. With all the family possessions still in place, the house has an immediacy rarely found in house museums.
