Erich Mendelsohn. Amerika. Berlin: Rudolf Mosse, 1926

“Stimulated by the perceptual dynamism he experienced in the United States, Mendelsohn organized the pages of his book cinematically. Moving from the jarring contrasts to sequenced street views, Amerika immerses the reader in the physical qualities of the American city and its architecture.”
