the einstein tower

the einstein tower is a cool piece of expressionist architecture built in germany in the 1920s.  the building was designed by erich mendelsohn and dedicated to understanding einstein's theories.

the building had to be reconstructed recently after it had been damaged in world war II and left for a while.

today the einstein tower is a working solar observatory.
