I lead a life that most would find uncomfortable. I have my work constantly criticized, I have an absurd amount of daily work, very little downtime, and what seems like no sleep beyond a few hours of restless tossing and turning most nights. But the funny thing is, I wouldn't have it any other way. I love my life as an architecture student

Book Pavilion’, entrance and Italian pavilion courtyard, Biennale, Venice, 1951-52 by Italian architect Carlo Scarpa. Scarpa (1906-1978) was a unique figure among second generation Modern architects - deeply embedded in the archaic and anachronistic culture of Venice, while also transforming the ancient city by weaving the most modern of spatial conceptions into its material fabric.

Joost Schmidt, Mechanical stage designBauhaus, Weimar (1925-1926)Ink and tempera on paper64 × 44 cm

The walls are painted to match the architectonic divisions of the room precisely. Just as the room is divided into two sections, the ceiling is divided into two rectangular fields of color. One of them is black. Flooded by the milky light from the horizontal ceiling lamps, this black fills the hall with a cool repose. At the edges of an architectonic section the surfaces are equal.

Bauhaus color: Rare color images by Bauhaus students (Herbert Bayer, Farkas Molnár, Joost Schmidt, Peter Keler), with text by the Polish modernist Tadeusz Peiper.
