Rescue by Craftsmen

“Today the arts exist in isolation, from which they can be rescued only through the conscious, co-operative effort of all craftsmen.  Architects, painters, sculptors must recognize anew and learn to grasp the composite character of a building both as an entity and in its separate parts.  Only then will their work be imbued with the architectonic spirit which it has lost as ‘salon art.'”

Walter Gropius

Programme of the Staatliche Bauhaus in Weimar, 1919
