Hermann Muthesius is one of the leading figures in German cultural policy and reform efforts at the beginning of the 20th century. His numerous writings on house building such as The English House (1908) and the standard work How do I build my house? (1917) were widely received. For the first time, the study places the design and construction activities as well as selected publications by the architect and their reception in a cultural-historical context and evaluates them comprehensively against this background.
