1919 – 1924
Architect: Erich Mendelsohn
Landscape planning: Richard Neutra
The building was constructed on behalf of the Einstein Foundation for spectral analytical research, in particular the proof of the theory of relativity, and was put into operation in 1924. The tower houses a solar observatory. Due to the mixed construction method – concrete and brickwork – the Einstein Tower had to be renovated again and again over the years. Architect Richard Neutra, at that time employed by Mendelsohn, designed the site around the tower.
