I found this book and similar ones from the Bauhaus era, facinating as whether we like it or not it has influenced world architecture, modern attitudes to design, fashion and style and even to teadching. It is not a great book in the sense of life changing but is great from the point of view of putting things in context.......the contemporary design world was not created yesterday, it goes bacjk a long way.
