Libraries are the pinnacle of human existence. They are filled with knowledge and love, kingdoms and nightmares, fairytales and biographies, the rise and fall of empires. To say you do not like to read is to say you do not cherish the very being of being alive.
The library of Alexandria being reduced to ash was the downfall of humanity, and set us back hundreds of years, perhaps thousands. Why? Well, the knowledge held in that library alone could have developed us as a united people 10x faster than where we are now. Alas, the ignorance of the importance of such knowledge caused the destruction of not just a library, but the future.
So, we must cherish the libraries we have now, because this is the knowledge we have access to. So many people in history were not allowed the blessing of reading and access to books. Read for the people who could not. Go to the libraries that still stand tall in honor of those that were fallen.

That the history of the Bauhaus also is an international reception history demonstrate the countless students and teachers who spread the school‘s example and ideas all over the world. Also in Brazil the Bauhaus influence has left its mark on a particular period of time, namely the late 1920s and 1930s when the first white and unadorned buildings were realized by several immigrant architects. Through the example of Gregori Warchavchik, Alexandre Altberg, Alexander Buddeus and Luis Nunes Joanna Bialobrzeska in her study „Bauhaus-Impuls in Brasilien“, published last year by Michael Imhof Verlag, follows the development of early modernism in Brazil and how it relates to the Bauhaus. The biographies of the four, three of them immigrants from Ukraine, Germany and Belgium, exemplify the different routes the Bauhaus influence took to Brazil, i.e. through immigrants who either studied at the Bauhaus, adopted the principles of the „Neues Bauen“ or, as in the case of Luis Nunes, through teachers as e.g. Lucio Costa. For each of the architects the author by means of comparative analyses shows how certain elements, buildings and architects, e.g. Walter Gropius, Ernst May or Erich Mendelsohn, served as examples for more or less successfully inspired buildings. Surprisingly many periodicals, monographs and texts found their way to Brazil through e.g. German immigrants, cultural circles or internationally traveling locals like the previously mentioned Lucio Costa. What Bialobrzeska also doesn’t omit is the growing hostility towards both Germans and Jews during the 1930s following the rise of the Nazis in Germany.
What rounds out this rich study is the significant amount of space assigned to buildings inspired by Bauhaus or „Neues Bauen“ architects that are not the four covered earlier. Thus local architects and their designs adjusted to the specific climates of Brazil receive their due appreciation while at same time the perspective on early Brazilian modernist architecture is significantly broadened. Accordingly the book doesn’t strictly adhere to its title but actually and quite successfully traces the German influence in Brazil.

Je sens, Harry, que j’ai donné mon âme entière à un être qui la traite comme une fleur à mettre à son habit, comme un bout de ruban pour sa vanité, comme la parure d’un jour d’été…
Oscar Wilde, Le Portrait de Dorian Gray
English : Then I feel, Harry, that I have given away my whole soul to someone who treats it as if it were a flower to put in his coat, a bit of decoration to charm his vanity, an ornament for a summer's day.
