Iwao Yamawaki

Who knows what Yamawaki's dream was in 1930 when he left Japan, with his wife, Michiko, to go to Germany and enter the Bauhaus in Dessau.

Yamawaki had studied architecture in Japan and apparently been disappointed with the way it was practiced, so one can only imagine how stimulating it must have been for him to arrive at a place where all the arts were seen as intrinsic to having a vision of a progressive world.
