"Maciuika is well-informed and writes in a clear and scholarly way."
"Maciuka's book provides a long overdue account of some of the diverse tenets of the modern movement in German architecture and design that foregrounds the important interplay between individual reform efforts and state institutions....an invaluable contribution to the historiography of central European architecture and design that will hopefully trigger further studies of this crucial moment...."
-Sabine Wieber, Birkbeck College, University of London, H-German
Before the Bauhaus reevaluates the political, architectural, and artistic cultures of pre-World War I Germany. The world or architects, craftsmen and applied-arts "artists" were not immune to the issues leading up to the First World War. This study substantially revises our understanding of the roots of the Bauhaus and, by extension, the historical roots of twentieth-century German architecture and design.
