Max Taut never became as well known as his brother Bruno Taut. However, he worked together with him and Franz Hoffmann from 1922 in the architectural firm Taut & Hoffmann. For Max Taut, it was particularly the large buildings for trade unions and the so-called large Berlin schools that made him famous. That's why he is also called architect of big cities. He created a very pure, functionalist style.During the Nazi era, Taut received no commissions.After World War II, he established a school of architecture at the University of the Arts in Berlin.
