1 of 1

Emil Fahrenkamp (November 8, 1885 - May 24, 1966) was a German architect and professor, one of the most prominent architects of the interwar period, best known for the design of the Shell House in Berlin. Fahrenkamp was born in Aachen, and came to Dusseldorf to work in the office of Wilhelm Kreis from 1909 to 1912. He became assistant, then professor at the Dusseldorf Academy of Art. His work in the 1920s and early 1930s can be seen as an integration of progressive Neues Bauen (simplified forms, flat roofs, repeated window patterns) with features of traditional styles.
