While in Berlin I took an evening to go check out the Brutalist Architecture of The Research Institute for Experimental Medicine.

Constructed in the 1970s, the building was designed to house the research center for experimental medicine at the Free University of Berlin. It was nicknamed the “mouse bunker” due to the more than 80,000 mice that have been used in experiments there.

The building is to be demolished this year. It was really cool to get to explore its exterior. Brutalist design continues to be an inspiration to me in particular with fashion design.
