  • Lack of ornamentation - simplicity and clean lines
  • Authentic materials- ones that are true to their original form and not altered in any ay steel, glass and organic materials that haven’t been overly worked or manipulated
  • Sleek visuals - polished, smooth lines
  • Flat roofs
  • Geometric accents - lines curves
  • Modern aesthetics
  • Form follows function - In the case of Bauhaus architecture, this can be seen in the affordable, realistic materials that are used, and the fact that mass production (followed by style) served as top priorities.
