Bruno Taut

Bruno Taut

Bruno Julius Florian Taut (4 May 1880, Königsberg, Germany – 24 December 1938, Istanbul), was a prolific German architect, urban planner and author active during the Weimar period.

Taut is known best for his theoretical work, speculative writings and the buildings he designed. Taut's best-known single building is the prismatic dome of the Glass Pavilion for the Cologne Werkbund Exhibition (1914). His sketches for the publication "Alpine Architecture" (1917) are the work of an unabashed Utopian visionary, and he is classified as a Modernist and in particular as an Expressionist. Much of Taut's literary work in German remains untranslated into English.

Famous quotes containing the word taut:

    You had gained,
    you outleapt them;
    a sudden, swift lift of the reins,
    a sudden, swift, taut grip of the reins,
    as suddenly loosed,
    you had gained.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
