Erich Mendelsohn was one of the most versatile architects of the 20th century. His work reconciles the opposites of organic and rational building, of technological innovation and a regionalist attitude, of individual form and universal expression. This comprehensive monograph documents all 70 of Mendelsohn's known completed buildings through text and images. In two essays, it also looks at his design approach, his life and his unbuilt projects. The publication also contains numerous new photographs by Carsten Krohn, newly drawn plans and historical illustrations.
