- On Mendelsohn’s post-war, post bombing, Einstein Tower: “The form of the Einstein Tower has withstood damage, but it is a form that has become reduced to its constituent lines of force. Strangely, the bomb blast, with its incredible displacement of pressure, earth, and energy, makes the building more legible. But is this because we are filling in the blanks, completing the forms?” A great post (and cited essay by Andew Hershcer) that dovetails perfectly with one of my perpetually unfinished projects. But more on that later…maybe. [A456]
