DESSAU, Germany - "Less is more," the innovators of the Bauhaus proclaimed more than 80 years ago of their design revolution that enshrined austerity and function in everything from teapots to skyscrapers. But apparently, their idea of "more" is still not enough. Today, the heirs to Germany's most successful design movement have resurrected the famous school of art and architecture to apply its principles to the urban development challenges of the 21st century. Denounced by the Nazis as "Bolshevik" and by the Communists who ruled this part of Germany for the next 40 years as "bourgeois," the design ideology sent packing on the eve of World War II has discovered newfound respect in the decade since German reunification.

At first glance, the cover of the new Love and Rockets album, "Sweet F.A.," seems to offer mute testimony to what the band lost last year in the fire that destroyed the Los Angeles house it was recording in. What seems to be a rather long piece of charcoal turns out, upon flipping the CD over, to be the well-roasted neck of an extremely overcooked guitar.But if you think that picture represents what the band lost, you're wrong. Because as bassist David J explains, that charred guitar isn't what the band lost -- it's all the band had left after the fire.

Outstanding PhotographyEditor: If there were ever any question concerning The Sun's continuing tradition of outstanding photography, complete with poignant subject matter, unique vantage points and compositional design, your article, "From A to Zebra: Sun Photographers' Favorite Pictures of 1993" (Dec. 26), answered them all.The cover by Jeffrey F. Bill especially caught my attention because its closeup of a zebra's stripes bears an uncanny resemblance to A. Aubrey Bodine's photograph which he titled "A Dozen Stripes," published in the old Sunday Sun rotogravure section in 1956.

Among the objects -- telephone, perfume bottle, purse, flowers -- in James Van Der Zee's "Her Cigarette" (about 1935) is the burning tobacco of the title, from which smoke rises to encircle an image from the unseen smoker's thoughts -- a lover, perhaps, or husband. In the companion piece "His Pipe" the objects are a man's, and the smoke from the pipe rises to encircle . . . her.These are photomontages, because the images of "him" and "her" are superimposed upon the photographs of objects.

A Memorable Place A London refresher course in design SPECIAL TO THE SUN By Bennard Perlman From my earliest visit to London, the River Thames has always served as a magnet that draws me to it. As a professional artist, I have painted it many times: the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben appearing in its ripple-altered reflection, the rows of benches occupied by tired strollers or individuals who, like myself, are simply mesmerized by the view, the...
