886. Das Haus Behrens

Dear Harry,

"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.
