We’re joining our friends at @savingplaces and @farnsworthhouse today as we celebrate the Bauhaus centenery and its legacy in America. The Heritage of the Bauhaus at the Glass House: In October 1929, Philip Johnson, 23, visited the Bauhaus for the first time, long before he would work at The Museum of Modern Art or study architecture. As a Harvard undergraduate, he was independently traveling throughout Europe in search of new developments in architecture. Writing to his mother in response to seeing Walter Gropius’s Bauhaus Johnson declared :“This is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world…. We are reveling in having reached our Mecca....” By 1932, Johnson would co-curate the show at MoMA and co-author the book that would be known as The International Style and which introduced the ideas of the Bauhaus and related modernism throughout Europe to an American audience. The Glass House “is a 1920s house,” according to Johnson. It references early architectural ideas of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the great German architect and teacher at the Bauhaus whom Johnson befriended in 1920s Europe. Albeit a midcentury interpretation, it is predicated on the Bauhaus’s DNA.

Homes are popular on Instagram, too.

Popular places get a lot of love on Instagram, but so do pictures of homes. The right photo can grab your attention (like the ones above). Quality images are equally as important in real estate. According to the Center for REALTOR® Development (CRD), homes with high-quality photography sell 32% faster and for more money. That's why every home we list receives both professional photography and marketing on Instagram.
