Ludwig, Eduard

(1906 - 1960)

Eduard Ludwig was a German architect and designer. Bauhaus educated Ludwig studied under Mies van der Rohe and worked at his office in Berlin from 1932 to 1937. After the war he taught architecture at the Hochschule für bildende Künste in Berlin and ran his own architecture firm. The focus of his design was affordable furniture, often to be assembled at home. Examples of his architectural work are a kiosk in Dessau (with Mies van der Rohe, 1932), a group of five houses for the Interbau project in Berlin (1957) and the Berlin Airlift Memorial (1951).
