Happy Birthday, Dear Bauhaus!


Our friends at Artkrush pointed us towards these birthday wishes for the Bauhaus school, which is celebrating 80 years of right-angled glory.

The article points to how the building’s iconic design fell in and out of favor over the years, yet it certainly seems to be in step with today’s cool kids:

Fans of the late 1990s trend for urban loft living will feel at home among the untreated concrete surfaces, while anyone who has shopped at Swedish furniture superstore IKEA will find the plain and functional furniture and light-fittings familiar.

The building plans to celebrate with a gray rectangular cake.
