The “Shell House” is one of the best-known examples of Modernist architecture in Berlin and an icon among big-city buildings. Up until now, its architect Emil Fahrenkamp has been associated almost exclusively with this legendary building. But was he truly a representative of Modernism? This book provides a complete survey of Fahrenkamp’s works in Berlin. In particular, his projects dating from the period of National Socialism – most of which remained plans – place the architect in a new light, unfamiliar in building history. A new view of Fahrenkamp’s architectonic intention and self-understanding may be gained by placing the “Shell House” in the context of his overall work. This book thus represents the basis for a new evaluation of Emil Fahrenkamp’s significance in the history of 20th century building.
