492. Poznan. Wieza Gornoslaska
The expressionist water tower of Posen was built in 1911 as an exhibition building for the Ostdeutsche Ausstellung, before being finally used as originally intended. The monumental form of the tower was seen then as a symbol of "German" power. The architect, Hans Poelzig, built among others important structures the huge office building for the 1931 IG Farben Corporation in Frankfurt.
