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

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

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

Here you can see some examples of Josef Frank's very iconic style:

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 for getting to know his wonderful work.
