Google celebrates Austrian/Swedish architect Josef Frank with a colourful Doodle

[Google Doodle for July 15th, 2010
Josef Frank's 125th Birth Anniversary]

Google Doodles are almost always very poetic and beautiful and it's really a pleasure to start my 'search engine journey' with something different and unexpected.

Today Google celebrates Austrian/Swedish architect Josef Frank's 125th birth anniversary [July 15th, 1885] with an explosion of shapes and colours, a Doodle realized by displaying some of the most beautiful creations from Frank.

Here you can see some examples:

Member of Vienna Circle considered one of the inspirers for successful IKEA style and awarded with Grand Austrian State Prize for architecture, Josef Frank is a key-figure for design history but is also unfortunately not so well-known. Maybe today's Doodle is a great occasion to getting to know his wonderful work.
You can find here something more about him.
