1 Review
German architect Hans Scharoun (1893-1972) studied and practiced architecture his entire adult life but did not build a major building until 1963 when his impressive Berlin Philharmonie finally came to life. Scharoun's sculptural designs were influenced by the Expressionist and Kubst und Werk circles in which he mingled, but his dramatic designs were highly singular and among the best of his generation.
