From 1915 to 1918 he worked on a military commission for the rebuilding of East Prussia. In 1919, he joined the Arbeitsrat für Kunst led by Bruno Taut. From 1919 to 1925 he worked independently, taking on private and public commissions as well as architectural projects for exhibitions. He taught at the Akademie für Kunst und Gewerbe in Breslau from 1925 to 1932, and at the Technische Universität Berlin as a town planning professor from 1946 to 1958. In 1956, he won the first prize of the competition for the Philharmonie concert hall in West Berlin. He died in Berlin in 1972. (Source: Ian Boyd Whyte, Bruno Taut and the Architecture of Activism.
