On view are project drawings by the German-born Mendelsohn, a contemporary of many of Europe's "second generation" of architects -- Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius, and Bruno and Max Taut -- who determined the direction of European architecture in the 1920s and 1930s. Mendelsohn, who left Germany and moved to America in 1941, specialized in "organic" architecture, architecture that related to its surrounding environment.
