Modern Architecture

At the beginning of the 20th century some architects departed from Historicism, trying to develop a more modern and useful architecture.
With the AEG-turbine plant, Peter Behrens paved the way for industrial architecture. Hermann Muthesius designed a new and modern Country-House style for Berlin's newly developing suburbs. Alfred Messel drafted the first department stores and Oskar Kaufmann, putting up the Volksbühne and the Hebbeltheater, introduced new trends in theater construction.
In the 1920s Berlin architecture became world-famous.
