The studios of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo were built in 1931 Juan O’Gorman. He designed one of the first functionalist buildings in Latin America: a house for the painter and another for his wife Frida Kahlo, where each one would have their own studio. The two houses are two blocks of smooth concrete, a red one for Diego, and blue one for Frida, and joined only by a small bridge at the top. O’Gorman´s own house is on a neighboring plot.

Any resemblance to Bauhaus architecture?
