Walter Gropius is one of the best-known German architects. He is considered one of the founders of modern architecture–together with Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe. The three of them founded the Bauhaus Weimar in 1919, the influence of which can be felt to this day. They even extended to the Playboy. Hugh Hefner is a huge fan of the “Neues Bauen” (or “New Building”) to this day. In its early years, the men’s magazine printed countless hymns of praise for Gropius and Mies van der Rohe, as well as reports on this development.
