Die gläserne Kette (German correspondence writers, 1919-1920)

Note: Bruno Taut initiated Die gläserne Kette with a letter of 24 November 1919. All those interested in joining the correspondence were to respond with the pseudonym that they would use. The following artists/architects replied: Carl Krayl (pseudonym Anfang), Paul Goesch (Tancred), Hans Scharoun (Hannes), Walter Gropius (Mass), Jakobus Göttel (Stellarius), Hans Hansen (Antischmitz), Wenzel Hablik (W.H), Max Taut ("kein Name"), Wilhelm Brückmann (Berxbach), Herman Finsterlin (Prometh), Wassili Luckhardt (Zacken), and Hans Luckhardt (Angkor). Alfred Brust (Cor) and Otto Gröne joined the circle later. The name "Die gläserne Kette" was given to the correspondence by Alfred Brust. The last letter of the correspondence was written by Finsterlin on 24 December 1920. Whyte translates 'Die gläserne Kette' as "Crystal Chain" rather than "Glass Chain" to suggest the more "exotic and rarefied connotations ... [which are] better served by the English word 'crystal'".
