San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/30/2013 -- It’s impossible to travel through a city without noticing its architecture. Architecture is everywhere and can be seen in everything from the most basic buildings to world-famous landmarks. But while people recognize buildings like the Eiffel Tour and Pentagon, few people think about the architects that created such designs.
That’s a problem that a website called Architecture-Classics.com seeks to solve. At Architecture-Classics.com, visitors will find a selection of world-famous architects ranked in alphabetical order. The website is devoted to bringing attention to some of the architects that helped shape the world, including recognizable names like Le Corbusier and Adolf Loos as well as names those outside the architecture community may not recognize, like Arne Jacobsen and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
The Architecture-Classics.com website recently revealed pages for two prominent architects: Walter Gropius and Adolf Loos. Gropius was born in Germany in 1883 and founded the world-renowned Bauhaus architecture school. Widely regarded as a pioneer of modern architecture, Gropius served in World War I and moved to the United States prior to World War II, bringing international modernism architecture techniques with him to the new world.
Meanwhile, Adolf Loos was an Austro-Hungarian architect who contributed more to architecture through his theoretical work – including numerous essays – than he did through his physical creations.
