Artist's Description

The “Einsteinturm” in Potsdam, Germany, is the first important building designed by the famous architect Erich Mendelsohn. It was planned and built in the years 1919 to 1924, the main part was finished in 1921. The inner part of the tower houses a solar observatory. It is now part of Potsdam Science Park and continues to serve as a center of astronomical research. The Tower in Potsdam, near Berlin is considered a key Expressionist building – its curved, organic forms depart from all traditional expectations of what a tower should look like.
