Bruno Taut's Glashaus made by Clemson Architecture students under Dr. Ufuk Ersoy.
Featured in the Gunnin Architecture Library : model of Bruno Taut’s Glashaus made by Clemson Architecture students under Dr. Ufuk Ersoy.
“In 1914, the young architect Bruno Taut (1880-1938) and the bohemian poet Paul Scheerbart (1863-1915) sought to represent an archetype of “glass architecture;” one by building the glashaus, the other by writing glasarchitektur. Highly critical of existing architecture and social conditions, they were in search of an inspiring alternative; and, because of its utopian character, glass was the idiosyncratic constituent of their imaginary world.
“The 1/20 scale model on display was built in Clemson University School of Architecture by Mason B Blackwell, Arthur L Southern, Madison H Polk, Harrison W Polk, Victor P Mardikian, Kenneth A Brabham, with the help of Chelsea M Anderson, Cody Blevins, Emily J Heezen, James A Wood, Jr., Joseph H. Whit, Juhee Porwal, Ksyusha Blackwell, Lucjan Rostkowski-Covington, Sneha M Rajput, Tarlan Joharchi, William L Mathis, under the supervision of assoc professor Dr. Ufuk Ersoy.”
