"It isn't from individual forms in nature that we can deduce
a useful pattern or model, but from its structure, its
construction, the mighty law of nature" (Peter Behrens)
The father of the modern movement in architecture the
self-taught architect and industrial designer Peter Behrens,
built his own house, in 1901 at the Darmstadt Artists' Colony.
It was his first architectural commission and it represented for
Behrens a turning point from the Arts and Crafts Movement
ideas to a more ascetic and fresh way of design.
