No doubt Walter Gropius was a special man. To invite a painter like Kandinsky to teach at the Bauhaus, showed vision and courage. What school of architecture would do something similar, now…?And, of course, Kandinsky was not the only one. Gropius was against specialization and against the specialists, who, he said, were merely repeating their mistakes over and over again… funny definition of the specialists.

But through a collective architectural response, could these two sites be brought closer together? (more…)
