Our entire 40-acre property, designed by Herbert Bayer between 1953 and 1973, is considered a Bauhaus-inspired “total work of art.” Austrian-born Bayer (1900-1985) helped create the Aspen Institute's original grounds— weaving outdoor walkways through his sculpted landscape (mounds, ponds, and paths collectively known as his "earthworks") to connect seminar spaces to the residential complex, reminding the visitor of his or her relationship with nature, mind, and body. The property is the epitome of a Bauhaus environment.
