Building Construction in Germany

THE architect has two souls. According to Prof. Dr. J. Terchnluller, of Karlsruhe, speaking at the recent Cologne Building Exhibition, one is that of the technical, or practical man, the other that of the artist. The architect in whom these two influences were not in conflict is fortunate, and two such men might be mentioned, Leonardo da Vinci, and Georg Baehr, one builder of the Frauenkirche in Dresden. J.E.
