After architect Erich Mendelsohn is this edition of a slightly more completed Complete Works of the Architect, adding to his original catalogue of his work. Originally self-published in 1930 as a monograph of his small, scrawled wartime sketches and early commercial projects, this revision takes Mendelsohn's original editorial vision as both guide and inspiration. This volume includes full-scale reproductions of Mendelsohn's work as a soldier in the First World War, reproductions of his visions and blueprints for city structures, and facsimile's of the architect's "intensely personal drawings." This catalogue of images follows two of his essays, translations in which he predicts the dynamism and intuition that would come to influence the architecture that would follow after him, and that we still recognize today.
Trans. to the English by Antje Fritsch.
