Never Trust the Suits

Perhaps an appropriate closing image from a fenced off Olympiadorf. I created several posts back in March about this fascinating student housing project in Munich. A sea of 1-level student bungalows, all personalized with brilliant colors, funny slogans, or slices of pop culture. I went back to share this unique place with a family member, but was surprised to see all of the bungalows fenced off for demolition. You can’t even get to them anymore. At the time of the first visit, it looked like they would take the complex down row by row, but now looks like it will be one fell swoop. Well, I’m glad I was able to see this slice of Munich before it disappeared forever.
