  1. The antithesis of Bauhaus.

  4. That's a good suggestion Gilles. I'll give it a try.
     
  5. Don't know what a Bauhaus building so I will just have to take your word for this image being its antithesis. Is this a building under construction? Interesting shot.
     
  6. Gordon, Bauhaus is an art school which originated in Germany after WWI and before WWII. It has inspired what is usually stamped "modern architecture" in which shape is adjusted in simplicity to the function.
    This structure here is in ruin. It is part of an old industrial area in Montreal that dates back to the end of the XIXth century. Most of these were mills and factories but are now abandoned. In the last 20 years, there has been a tremendous effort to gentrify the area, converting some of the most respectable buildings into superior dwellings, condos and lofts.
    Here is one sample :
