Egon Eiermann


An extensive retrospective of the work of famed German modernist architect Egon Eiermann is currently underway in Berlin (and will be moving to Nuremberg next). Celebrating his birth 100 years ago, the show documents his buildings, including the German embassay in Washington, D.C., the Parliamentary Office Tower in Bonn, and his sleek and practical interiors and furniture designs. Perhaps more than any other architect he helped Germany become part of the International school of architecture, leaving the ominous Third Reich aesthetic far behind. Can't make it to the show? Check out the catalog.
