Einstein Tower, Albert Einstein Science Park Potsdam Germany

Erich Mendelsohn (with Richard Neutra) designed the Einsteinturm astrophysical observatory for the Albert Einstein Science Park in Potsdam, Germany, completed in 1924. The expressionist structure atop Telegraphenberg houses Erwin Finlay-Freundlich's telescope which was used to validate Einstein's theory of relativity.

It remains today one of the top artistic expressions of science in a structure meant for study and research. The pueblo-like building gives a realism and down to earth aesthetic atmosphere.
