Hans Heinrich Müller. His creations in Berlin-Mitte.

In this series, I gather photos of the architecture made by Hans Heinrich Müller (1879-1951). The work of this man is too forgotten, although he was the mastermind behind dozens of Electricity Stations which were constructed in Berlin’s 1920s and early 1930s. When I saw the Umspannwerk Buchhändlerhof for the first time, I realised that I’ve seen work of this architect earlier already. While bumping into the Umspannwerk Koppenplatz, this experience repeated. Although being total unique constructions, Müller clearly had a strong architectural signature. It meant the kick-off for the investigation prior to this series. Now, these are Müller’s creations that are to be found in the Mitte district!
