Annemarie Jaeggi. The Fagus Shoe-Last factory in Alfred, Germany is a seminal building in the history of modern architecture.
Designed by Walter Gropius in , this three-story factory was the first large structure to use a steel frame, allowing the facade to be made almost entirely of glass. This revolutionary technique set new standards for industrial construction and is still used in the building of every skyscraper. Fagus traces the history of the building from , when it was designed and built, through the late s, the period of final collaboration between Gropius and factory management.
