Adolf Meyer (architect)
Adolf Meyer (17 June, 1881, Mechernich[de] – 14 July, 1929, the Island of Baltrum[de]) was a German architect. A student and employee of Peter Behrens, Meyer became the office boss of the firm of Walter Gropius around 1915 and a full partner afterwards. In 1919 Gropius appointed Meyer as a master at the Bauhaus, where he taught work drawing and construction technique. Meyer is also credited as co-designer of the Gropius entry for the 1922 Chicago Tribune Tower competition.
From 1926 he practiced as an architect in the New Frankfurt-project.
