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!
