In this mini-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 the 1920s and early 1930s. Müller’s usage of red bricks in odd shapes and eccentric ornaments are somewhat mesmerising and have something magic. Architects could talk for hours and hours about his work, but I’m not an architect. For me, Hans Müller’s constructions are just very aesthetic. Alright – I’ve had enough of talking, ready to picture these brick-stone beauties!
