Timeless Travels Magazine - - CURIOUS CITIES -

Ham­burg is the home of Brick Ex­pres­sion­ism, a style pi­o­neered in the 1920s by Ger­man ar­chi­tect Fritz Höger. His flag­ship cre­ation is the Chile­haus, an of­fice block de­signed for a ship­ping mag­nate and tak­ing the form of the prow of a huge ship. Its con­struc­tion re­quired five mil­lion bricks.
