Paul Emmerich

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Paul Wilhelm Carl Eberhard Emmerich (born July 27, 1876 in Berlin ; † September 28, 1958 there ) was a German architect .


Paul Emmerich was a son of the architect Julius Emmerich and his wife Auguste, geb. Ebhardt. He studied at the Technical University of Charlottenburg . After graduating, he worked as a freelance architect. From 1911 he and his brother-in-law Paul Mebes ran the architectural office Mebes & Emmerich , whose main area of ​​activity was residential construction. In addition, there are numerous examples of other construction tasks that the office was entrusted with and which received attention, e. B. Administration buildings and schools.

After Paul Mebes' death (1938), Paul Emmerich continued to run the office under the same name. After the Second World War , his son Jürgen Emmerich (born July 18, 1905 in Berlin; † April 6, 1973 there) entered the office.


It is not clear what individual contribution Mebes and Emmerich had in the design of the buildings executed by the joint office. In the literature, individual buildings are occasionally only attributed to Mebes - but this may be due to the fact that Mebes was a little better known through his publications.
