In 1928 Gropius resigned the directorship of the Bauhaus to go into private practice in Berlin, where he designed important institutional structures. As chairman of the design committee of the Adler automobile company (1929-1933) he also designed automobile bodies. Dismayed at Adolf Hitler's Germany, Gropius left for London in 1934. In 1937 he and Marcel Breuer moved to the United States to complete a threeyear project in Massachusetts. Over the next two years the two designed their own houses in Lincoln, Massachusetts; the Hagerty House in Cohasset, Massachusetts; the Abele House in Framingham, Massachusetts; and the Frank House in Pittsburgh.
