Einstein Tower - Eric Mendelsohn

The Einstein Tower in Potsdam, designed by architect Eric Mendelsohn in the 1920s as an observatory for the sun, and as a tribute to a great scientist-- a perfect example of the expressionist architecture of the period that was somewhat overshadowed by fashion, and that sadly became buried by political circumstances.

The Einstein Tower looks like an erecting penis by observing it from a distance further way.
