DIE MEISTERHÄUSER IN DESSAU / Bauhaus Paperback 10 by Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau [GERMAN EDITION]

「BAUHAUS PAPERBACK」シリーズ第10作。バウハウス・デッサウ校本館のすぐ近くに立つ3軒のMasters’ Houseは、21世紀のアーティストコロニーを体現している。Director’s Houseと3軒のセミ・デタッチドハウス(※註)は1925年から1926年に建てられた。ヴァルター・グロピウス(Walter Gropius)の設計書に基づき、バウハウスの教師とその家族の住居としてこの3軒の「彫刻的な立方体」とも言える家は建てられた。Masters’ Houseは現代的な生活を体現し最先端の家事モデルを提示するような、いわばショーウィンドウの役目も果たしていた。この60年の間にこれらの建物は再建、破壊、放置という波乱万丈の運命をたどったが、2014年に完全に復元。本書はこの3つの建物の物語を紹介し、Masters’ Houseが現代の生活にどのような影響を与えたかについて考察する。

※註 一見一つの建物のように見えるが、入り口が二つに分かれている一軒の家を半分に割った左右対称の2軒続きの家。

The Masters’ House ensemble in Dessau – located just a short distance from the Bauhaus building itself – epitomises the twentieth-century artists’ colony. The Director’s House and three semi-detached dwellings were constructed between 1925 and 1926. Based on plans drawn up by Walter Gropius, these sculptural cubes were built to accommodate the Bauhaus masters and their families. The Masters’ Houses were also intended as a display window, offering a view of modern life and presenting a model for state-of-the-art housekeeping. Over the last six decades, the buildings have had a chequered history of reconstruction, destruction, and neglect, but as of 2014 the site is now complete again. This paperback book tells the story of the ensemble and shows how the Masters’ Houses have influenced modern life.
