Great architecture touches the soul and lifts the spirit. The most beautiful buildings also reflect our physical bodies and celebrate our senses.

Buildings that are bland, uninteresting, or downright ugly may strike you as neuter. They lack a sense of masculine or feminine energy, and they do not appeal to the senses.

For some people, streamlined Bauhaus architecture can seem neuter. But for many people, the most simple architecture is also the most sensual. A Bauhaus building such as the Walter Gropius house shown here can express the best of the physical and the spiritual realm.
