The Bauhaus in Greece: Myth and Reality
The ideas and methods of the Bauhaus, and of its most renowned masters and teachers, reached Greece early on, during the interwar period. Architects Fred Forbat and Ioannis Despotopoulos spread these ideas, which had a small, yet important, influence on other architects and artists. The interest in the Bauhaus increased even more during the 1960s and was both a source of inspiration and a myth for future generations. Today, after 100 years, we can review and evaluate this creative exchange of ideas.
Panayotis Tournikiotis is professor of architectural theory, and the director of the History and Theory of Architecture Lab at the National Technical University of Athens, School of Architecture.
