German Pavillion (Deutsches Haus), 1937 World Expo

Generalfeldmarschall
This pavillion, designed by German architect Albert Speer, was the one standing in the "Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne". The image of this pavillion in front of the Soviet one became an iconic picture of the ideological competition between Communism and Nazism. At night, the German pavillion was illuminated by floodlights, creating a "Cathedral of Light" effect, like the Zeppelintribüne in Nuremberg. A model of the Reichsparteitagsgelände was located inside the structure.. #1937 #Albert_Speer #architecture #Deutschland #Expo #Fascist_Stripped_Classical #France #German #Germany #Nazi #Nazi_architecture #Paris #pavillion #Speer #Trocadero #Trocadéro #Universal_Exposition #World_Fair #Worlds_Fair
