Walter Gropius, who argued that design was “a new integration: art and technology,” founded the Bauhaus 100 years ago, which can be said to be the source of education and philosophy of modern design, based on his design philosophy. After that, he served as a professor at Harvard University, USA. It has had a significant impact on American design education. And his teachings have spread throughout the world through American education and practice and have had numerous effects on humanity.
