Industrial Court building shows signs of structural defects: The Industrial Court building, barely one and a half years old, has structural defects which may render it inhabitable. When the Sunday Standard visited the building, it found that the twin pillars at the entrance to the court had developed gaping cracks at their bases and discovered that someone has been trying to hide what was probably taken for hairline cracks with paint but the cracks are widening.

GROPIUS HOUSE / Architect: Walter Gropius / Location: Lincoln, MA, USA / Completion: 1938

Gropius House


The home Walter Gropius built for his family soon after moving from to the US from Germany had a dramatic impact on American architecture. Its detailing keeps strongly to the principles of the Bauhaus, which Gropius had founded and directed in Germany, exploiting simple, well-designed but mass-produced fittings for steel wall lights, chromed banisters etc., as well as in the structure of the house (glass block walls complementing the wooden frame and New England clapboarding).

Boidus Quotes-‘what they say..’

"Modern architects – scum of the earth. It doesn’t matter what you ask them to design, they still come up with something that looks like an old dustbin with a bicycle sticking out of the top."
