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.
