Erich Mendelsohn's visionary approach to architecture was evident in his very first project, the Einstein Tower in Potsdam. The rounded edges and clearly defined verticals and horizontals of this building -- the same elements the young German architect had sketched as a soldier during World War I -- launched him into the avant-garde and also brought him numerous commissions in Berlin throughout the 1920s. The same expressionist sensibility would define his work as he moved from Germany to England and to Jerusalem and, in 1941, to the United States. Erich Mendelsohn: Built Works, the first major monograph on the architect in 25 years, thoroughly documents and analyzes all of his completed projects. Extensively illustrated with architectural drawings and archival photographs, the volume presents a comprehensive view of each building: the Einstein Tower, the Luckenwald hat factory, a pavilion at Bexhill-on-Sea in Sussex, a hospital in Haifa, a building for the Hebrew University on Mount Scopus, commissions for the American Jewish community (including several synagogues and a Holocaust memorial in Riverside Park, New York), and numerous private houses.
