Erich Mendelsohn
March 21

Born on this day in 1887, German architect Erich Mendelsohn helped pioneer the Expressionist Movement. He is perhaps best known for his 1919 design of the Einstein Tower in Potsdam. Among his later works include the Schocken Department Stores in Stuttgart and Chemnitz. In 1941, Mendelsohn became a resident of the United States, where he designed several synagogues in the Midwest.
