Ist das nicht Brian?
He doesn’t seem to be smiling!
Can you detect the house here at Google Maps?
Ich glaube, es ist Nr. 4. Hier der Link
Ja, dieses hatte ich auch vermutet.
How come there’s no Street View? Does Gordon Brown play at the club on Sundays?
I’m a big fan of Bauhaus but this looks too much like a modern church to me.
You think so, Michele? Hmm, I feel rather ashamed of myself now.
But it isn’t a church, at least I can say that. I would like to see inside.
Oh, no need to feel ashamed Margaret! It’s especially interesting that it’s located in a more conventional setting. I’d also love to see the inside and find out who the architect is.
The church it actually reminds me of is [url]http://www.muttenz.ch/de/kirchenmain/kirchekath/[/url] which I think is a disaster in many respects. I have family in Muttenz and just cringe whenever we drive by it.
I couldn’t pin that church down elsewhere online to see more pictures. I admit I don’t particularly like it. I can’t see any windows, so it looks prison-like to me.
Sorry for being off-topic. I agree, it looks like a bunker to me. I also had trouble finding many pics online. There are a few here but they don’t really convey how bad it is: http://www.kja-basel.ch/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=20&Itemid=34&sID=27
Thanks. I admit the Zopf- und Gipfeli-Aktion looks more appealing.
Is it off topic? At all events I am now translating about churches etc. at [url=http://www.kz-gedenkstaette-dachau.de/gedenkstaette/station12.html]Dachau[/url] and I see the point of those, but I suppose your church is not making a point about suffering and imprisonment? I wonder what the architect was thinking about.
I think this church is totally different from Bauhaus. It was originally exposed concrete, only painted white later. It’s a very 1960s style of concrete blocks. I don’t see the house in that way at all.
Sooner or even sooner we’re going to have to invent a version of Godwin’s Law for people who use Bauhaus either to praise or damn.
