Hans Heinrich Müller’s constructions in Berlin-Wedding.

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. This has been his contribution to the district of Wedding!

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!

Hans Heinrich Müller in Neukölln. The Umspannwerk Richardstraße.

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. The way these stairs are constructed, the always attending ridge, the high windows that are deep within the bricks… Yes – the Umspannwerk at the Richardstaße is a “Müller” to the bone!

Hans Heinrich Müller’s “Ab- &Umspannwerke” in the Berlin districts of Köpenick and Adlershof

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. It happened often, that I was looking for a peculiar building that I’ve seen in the German capital and (once again) used to be an original Müller. Clear as the day, it’s time to hunt and collect his work once and for all!

Hans Heinrich Müller’s Abspannwerk in Berlin-Wilhelmsruh

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. In despite of the industrial intentions of the buildings, Müller’s usage of red bricks in odd shapes and eccentric ornaments gave the creations something magic. The Abspannwerk Wilhelmsruh may be the best example for this. Making an estimation which of Müller’s constructions are the biggest is hard, but in my perception it was this unit. Now, take a look how many different views you can still get from this cathedral…

Hans Heinrich Müller in Charlottenburg. The Umspannwerk Leibniz.

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. Today: the famous Ummspannwerk Leibniz!

Hans Heinrich Müller’s buildings in Prenzlauer Berg.

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. To remember his work, I wandered around the dynamic district of Prenzlauer Berg with a camera. The result is exhibited here!
