Admiring the architecture of a building that inevitably amazes anyone who witnesses it, the photographs and text in this volume document the Bauhaus school, articulating how the interplay of natural and artificial light form a special aspect of the structure's aesthetic. The façade of steel and glass is examined in detail, revealing how it seemingly melts into the heavens when seen from a certain vantage point. Conveying a multi-faceted interpretation of a heretofore undocumented aspect of the Bauhaus aesthetic, this consideration is ideal for architects, students of art and architecture, and interested laymen. This edition includes English and German.
