Open Windows

Open Windows. In fact these are not just any open windows but are the windows of the lecture theatre of the Bauhaus building in Dessau, Germany. I made a 'pilgrimage' there from Leipzig in 2011, and was blessed with blue sky, green grass and bright sun. I bought a day ticket, and a photo pass, giving me guided tours of the main building and the Masters' Houses, and entry to a temporary exhibition (a large and well laid out display of the commercial design work of Wilhelm Wagenfeld, one of the founding Bauhaus designers). The two tours lasted more than an hour each and were extremely interesting, even though I couldn't follow too much of the German!
