Erich Mendelsohn's Rough Sketches
Posted on 17 June 2016
Erich Mendelsohn was an extremely influential expressionist architect from Prussia (now Poland). He worked with a young Richard Neutra, who would take much of the things he learned from Mendelsohn to the United States. By 1941, Mendelsohn, too, had moved to the U.S. where he taught at U.C. Berkely, while also designing buildings until his death in 1953. These sketches are from Mendelsohn's early work in Eastern Europe and Germany from the 20s and 30s.
