When I first enter the Bauhaus, the beginning of modern architecture, I find myself unimpressed. Sure, it has cool aspects, nice modern looking furniture and interesting lighting. Other then that it's pretty bland, but that's what the idea was about right? Only using what is necessary to complete the needs of the inhabitants. Sounds pretty sad for "modern architecture" but I suppose before Picasso could create his abstract art he had to start with the bare beginnings. So Gropius was right in stripping down architecture to what was necessary, giving us the options now to build off the simple and bring the post modern era into a new more complicated form of expression.
